The Chronicle's Response

I'm pleasantly surprised by this letter from the Chronicle-Tribune's editor. Their response is world apart from how Taylor generally responds to criticism. This arrived several days ago, but I've just now had the chance to get to it.

Mr. McLaughlin.

Thanks for your note. You make some good points for us to consider.

As you know, Jim Garringer's work is always accompanied by a statement letting readers know where he works and why he is aware of the events going on at Taylor University. As you point out, it's always possible that someone might be confused. In order to avoid any confusion or appearance of a conflict of interest, we will identify Mr. Garringer's future work as a periodic column for the Chronicle-Tribune. This is an opportunity that is given to several other local people in the newspaper's ongoing efforts to inform readers about community happenings and present diversified perspectives and voices.

Thanks for your interest and readership.

Sincerely,

Tammy Pearson, Managing Editor
Chronicle-Tribune, Marion, Ind.
That's an excellent idea that will help to eliminate any confusion from readers.
