This is a bonus episode where I am forced to make a statement
about my story concerning Louie Anderson.
As it turns out the hard hitting investigative journalism of
Jay Cridlin from the Tampa Bay Times newspaper has uncovered the 32
year old story of a young rube from Florida who went to Hollywood
for the first time and got his ass squeezed by one of America's
most beloved clean comedians.
Is this newsworthy or just a cheap shot from an entertainment
writer at a family newspaper to create a click bait story that will
drive traffic to their website?
In this episode I recount, read and emote the correspondence
and my personal plea to Jay Cridlin not to punch down at Louie
Anderson by bringing my name up to him in his interview. He chose
to do so anyway so that it why I am addressing this now in the full
glory of emotions that I have experienced from the time of the
incident, to now being put on the spot for a comment that was
requested by Jay Cridlin from the Tampa Bay Times.
I will read to you now both, the first draft of my official
statement and the final short official statement that I sent after
talking with my most trusted friends.
I do not believe that journalists are the "enemy of the
American people" like Trump keeps repeating but I do believe that
some of them might consider applying the standards of human decency
to their work. Bravo to the Tampa Bay Times for such hard hitting
investigative journalism and I hope that this story earns them the
Pulitzer prize that they so richly deserve. Shalom Amigos y
