Apology Accepted

I should’ve mentioned this three weeks ago when it happened but for some reason it didn’t occur to me to put it in a post. As most of you probably remember from a couple posts that I wrote on the matter, Jim Carty—of the Ann Arbor News—took one of my posts to task back in July for suggesting Rich Rodriguez would be a good choice for Michigan. After Michigan named Rodriguez the new Head Football Coach, Carty apologized for his July article. Those of you who read have probably seen the article already. Carty and I have exchanged emails discussing everything. I told him I appreciated his apology and whatnot. However annoying his July-post was, I do think it’s admirable that he took the time to apologize to a lowly blogger. Most media-types—and you can find evidence of this just about every day—don’t respect bloggers enough to even bother with a simple, “my bad.” Anyhow, I’m pretty sure it’s bad form to not follow a public apology with a public acceptance. Carty already knows my thoughts on the matter but I just wanted to pass it along to my readership as well. Hopefully Carty learned a lesson here because if he acts up again, I’ll have to give him more things to apologize for. =)
