I Beg to Differ   

While I am pleased AJR chose to follow up on the story of my resignation as managing editor of the Jupiter Courier, and the resignation of editorial page editor Randall Murray (The Beat, April/May), I am dismayed at the inaccuracy of the comments by Mark Tomasik, editor of Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers.

Mr. Tomasik claims corporate was "bombarded" with calls from readers upset with photos and letters not running in the Courier. Nothing could be further from the truth! In fact, the only "bombardment" Scripps corporate received was after we resigned. Perhaps the story should have included the number of protests heard in Cincinnati from readers upset with Scripps' actions and our subsequent resignations. I understand those complaints numbered in the hundreds.

In his statement to the community, Mr. Tomasik acknowledges receiving two complaints. If there indeed had been a bombardment, as he claimed in his interview with AJR, wouldn't he have shared that with Courier readers?
