Last week, the article "Where Are they Now" generated an enormous amount of reader feedback, from many involved in the Albany political community. The article was an attempt to show how different sides of the political spectrum interact with, and the treatment that issues receive, from Albany's and the nation's media markets.
According to the reader feedback that was received, it failed to do so.
I, personally, would like to sincerely apologize to anyone who was offended in any, way, shape of form by the article "Where Are They NOW?" All of the groups cited in the article, especially the National Organization for Women (NOW), have, and continue to advance a positive agenda that benefits not just women, but everyone.
In 2010, this column began to open the social and political discourse in Albany. Unfortunately, many of the e mails and reader feedback since its inception have involved personal allegations about the reporter, instead attacking the important and serious issues being discussed. The article "Where Are they NOW?" has been pulled from any further circulation, and all of this column writer's work will no longer continue for EXAMINER.com. For any further inquires, please contact EXAMINER.com.
It remains surreal, that in the year 2010, the personalization and polarization of issues still readily impedes progress and open discussion at the State's Capitol.
