    Sady Doyle’s article is amazing. Please read it. Despite being angry at an extremely hate filled set during which she flipped Sam Morril off twice from her seat (she forgot to report the audience reaction, why does this guy get work), she e-mailed him an extremely thoughtful and diplomatic response in hopes of a dialogue. She deliberately did not “game the system” or “pre-determine the outcome” by “ambushing” him with rape statistics or anger and try to humiliate him for her readers by making him look like an asshole or coward.

    “I actually do want to hear what you have to say here. People keep having the same fight, and nothing changes on either side. Maybe this is a chance to actually have a conversation. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.”

    Morril initially claimed he was open to questions. Doyle was ready to listen.

    Some issues could use more of that.

    I saw the report on the arrest of Lt. Col. Krusinski while I was getting an oil change. What a surprise.
