There is only one basic human right, the right to do as you damn well please. And with it comes the only basic human duty, the duty to take the consequences.
P. J. O'Rourke
For instance, Life exists outside of that email. What happened in the hours after the email? Did Woodward see any action that made him believe he needed to take this line about regret more seriously?
Or maybe he was immediately threatened and backed down for the threat. “oh don’t worry buddy. We are friends. I appreciate you yelling at me. I need that”. Then later he was ashamed of him lack of journalistic courage and came back out firing.
You have your mind made up. A closed mind is not something I respect at all.
