I felt he blamed Erika for the situation she had been in; if he himself 
had had such experiences and been blamed in public on this list, I wonder 
if he would have reacted with such reasonableness and generosity as Erika 
and Tara did.

I do try to treat people with respect, all people deserve that, it's just 
sometimes they say things that appears particularly callous. This post 
struck a chord with me because tomorrow is the fourth anniversary of the 
death of my most dearly loved friend, teacher and inspiration. That's all 
I'm going to say on this topic.
