Everyone makes mistakes and everyone says things in anger they wish they could take back. While it's taken a while, Peter DiGaudio has admitted that his referring to a Hispanic family as "chattering chihuahuas" was dumb and tasteless.
I have said in the past that Peter is a talented writer and at times provides keen insight on current events and other issues. While I would like to see Peter move away from some of the namecalling he is famous for, we all, myself included could probably improve in that area as well. The vast electronic void that separates us on the Internet does seem to encourage mud throwing.
The lefty blogosphere, and a couple conservatives, were quick to jump all over Peter for that remark -- and rightly so. However, if we are going to be quick to criticize, we should be just as quick to applaud common sense and humility. While Peter was not apologizing to anyone in particular, his admission that he done wrong is welcome. Thank you, Peter.
Arizona Didn’t Send 140,000 Voter IDs Before Today’s Special Election. GO VOTE ANYWAY. - The guy who ran as a reformer really screwed the pooch. Honestly, for what it's worth.
