Bias? I Stitch You Not

Yesterday I bumped into a very kind neighbor at Kayleigh's school open house. We like each other, but on matters of politics and religion, we diverge – a lot.

She said she was excited to see my byline on the lead story in the paper (thank you very much), but said she read it very carefully to look for any bias, any slant, any tiny hint of how I felt. She found nothing.

[Do a little dance, make a little love, gitdowndanight, gitdowndanight]

So I guess I'm doing OK. It was nice to hear. I get so frustrated sometimes. And I've certainly made mistakes. [shudder – And no, I won't give any details.]

Don't we all make mistakes?

So was she looking hoping you hadn't shown a bias or was she trying to catch you in the act?

Congrats on your objectivity - that isn't easy to do. But don't you think her comment was odd ??

Yeah, Crystal, mistakes are what make us all so funny.

RC, it was a little strange. She probably just didn't think I could do it. I don't defer to her, and I think she's used to that.
