I write something critical about The Kansas City Star and somebody pops up in comments with the time-tested axiom that I’m harboring a grudge after getting caught up last year in one of the newspaper’s many layoffs.

I’ve been keeping a critical eye on the Star long before we parted company. Amicably, I might add. Back when I was a stock and commodities broker; when I ran the Pitch – heck – all during the time I worked at the paper when it was appropriate. Anyone who’s been keeping anything approaching an eye on me over the years can vouch for that.
