The contents of this website are copyrighted. Though I understand
that there are fair use laws and public display laws, there has
also been a disregard for these laws by certain members of the press.
I would encourage editors to ask where material is obtained from
and ask them to consider who owns the rights to the material.
I would like to thank the Boston Globe and the LA Times for having
a high regard for copyright laws.
Though I understand the need for journalists to go on
"fishing expeditions" to members of the Chicago poetry
community and friends of JJ Jameson, some of these
have been mean spirited and cruel.
A bigger story in my personal life has been taking care of a father who
has Alzheimer's disease. To those members of the press who have
contacted my father, I think I have adequately expressed my anger
to you bastards.
I have great regard for the profession of journalism and I hope that
in the future editors can find talent that brings a higher level of
professionalism to it.
