A few people I respect asked me to write a response to the AJ “incident”–or “Kettlegate,” as one person–creatively, I thought–christened it. It was such an emotional event that I had to wait a couple days to even gather my thoughts. By now, the internet is abuzz with perspectives, criticisms, theories, and solutions. I feel a little silly trying to say this much about it now. Still, I thought I should add my voice.
