One of the most "fairest" and most objective articles written about my case comes from the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer. I commend Stephanie Pedersen for doing such a fine job and I intend to send her my thanks. I would have rather her not written an article about me in the city I lived but I also understand it was an important and significant story for Columbus, GA. In many ways, she did me a service which puts notice to everyone that online free speech in GA is not to be trifled with and certainly not through the GA anti-stalking statute law.

This very disappointing. The newspaper went through a major software platform overhaul and all the great comments written are now gone. They preserved the text of the article but everything else was washed away.

I wish I had kept a copy of my original comments. I don't think I can recreate the comments of how I felt at that time. I made some very pointed and directed comments for everyone to read. Also, Oscar Michelen himself made some good comments also.

The person who gets the most benefit from this change is Elizabeth "Betsy" McBride, the local attorney who made so many embarrassing mistakes that led to this fiasco to begin with.

Taking on this case against me was a major "blackeye" on her terrible performance and tremendously embarrassing for so many reasons.  She and her ally lawyer Timmy B. McCormack were spanked so hard in the Georgia Supreme Court, all captured on video for legal history.
