The article offended many of the readers who have contacted me as well.
I don't regret a word of the article. I think it's straight shooting. The
line that got everyone's gander up was about Heatley probably wishing he was dead.
All I know is, if I was 22 years old, and my friend had died beside me in a car I was driving way too fast, I'd gladly change places with him.
This kids life is in tatters. I think disturbing is a very good word for his situation. I found it disturbing writing about it, as well.
So, no sarcasm intended folks.
Thanks for posting the reply. Based on Ulmers style ( or what I thought was his style) I didn't really think the article was meant to be taken as literally as Ulmer seems to imply in his response.
