    But according to what she told Sykes, it started after the glowing article…I suppose if you’re talking journalistic integrity, that would be important. If you’re talking personal integrity, not so much…

    Let’s have a headline contest.

    “In Like Flynn”.

    On another note, I almost ran you over on Water Street today, right around Water Street Brewery a little after 12.

    Looks like those defensive wheelchair driving lessons you took paid off.

    Mmmm, Qdoba.

    And thanks for swerving. Though I would have preferred you had swerved away.

    McB’s excuse is in direct contradiction to some of the phraseology in her love letter.

    Plus, it is rather telling that she worries more about her “professional” reputation than her own family’s pain.

    Capper, I think that’s what a lot of people are picking up on. Flynn took responsibility and apologized to the city and his family. McBride seems only to care about her professional reputation. A lot of people are changing their opinions of her after seeing that.

    BTW – my first comment was before more info came out.

    I just read:
    “Justice comes to those that wait”……..How True!

    If they wiil do it with you, they will do it to you.

    Perhaps the successor to McBride-Bucher at UWM, (once she is fired), can use her as a case study.

    Ellen, I think the phrase is “Time wounds all heels.”
