Also A Piece That The Huffington Post Didn’t Like

This was written by my friend Ben Leroy.  Because Ben is more well-known than me, more famous, more established in the writing world (and better looking?), the Huffington Post printed his post even though they didn’t like it. But they let him know afterward that they didn’t want “these sorts” of articles in the future.

Leroy is writing about visiting the site of the infamous Gary Gilmore murder, the murder that brought capital punishment back to the United States.  Clicking the link, you’ll see an intro and context.

I guess that in the United States (and at the Huff Po), we don’t like to look too hard in the mirror.

Warning – You might be overwhelmed by one of the incredible metaphors in this piece of writing:

“I am the dog who has caught the fender.”
