Mea Culpa

It was brought to my attention that the comment section in one of my posts contained a rather nasty, personal attack on an individual who I am not familiar with.

I apologize to this person for allowing the comment to be posted and I deeply regret that I allowed it to get through in the first place.

While we're on the subject....this blog has become somewhat of a sounding board for potential corruption issues within city government. I think this is very healthy and maybe it provides a little sunshine to expose dealings which may otherwise not be brought to light. But I have no intention or desire to launch personal attacks against anyone in the private sector. For that matter, I don't care about the private lives of public officials unless of course it affects the public performance of their job or if it affects public money, i.e., Vitter and his prostitute habit, Meffert and Nagin taking personal trips to Hawaii on a city contractor's dime.

In the aforementioned case I let the comment slip in because I admittedly didn't screen it properly. I was out of town and was administering the blog from a cell bad.

For future reference...please don't post comments attacking anyone on a personal level. I am not interested in people's private lives or their personal dirty laundry. I am only interested in public corruption and issues which affect public money.

Once again, I apologize for that comment slipping through.
