Thanks Yosef, truly appreciate the kind words. Yeah I mean in fairness, people outside of my general area wouldn’t have an interest in their stories, obviously. So I suppose I have a built in unfair advantage but it’s very much by design and that’s my point — I’m free to write whatever story I choose here.
I would never be so petty as to tag the editor who passed and only linked to the publication to back up my story, so readers know I wasn’t just making wild, unverified claims. Thanks for reading Yosef, enjoy your day.
