Shallow Apology Falls Flat
The current apology posted at Cook's Source is nothing but spin. There is no excuse for stealing works from anyone. Even if you have every intention of securing permission later, stealing is stealing. Exhaustion is not an excuse. Bleary-eyes are not an excuse. Even the noble acts of highlighting small towns, (so you can sell ads in your magazine), is no excuse. Ms. Griggs was, that night, a thief.
Your actions were reasonable and should not be called into question by Ms Griggs. I find it shallow that she tries to paint you as a villain battling her do-gooder publication. She earns no points with me when she uses stories of those recently unemployed to justify her acts of thievery against you.
Don't let her make you feel responsible for the demise of Cook's Source. Everything that happened to her was triggered by her actions, not yours. She is the one who stole from you. If that shuts down the magazine, it is because of what she did.
I am inspired by your courage. Take heart, you will continue to be supported out here in the 'nets.
