I have mixed feelings. The Daily News gave me broad exposure for my human rights and social justice advocacy. On the other hand, it wasn't easy to work with my assigned editor, the token right winger on the editorial board. In fact, at times it was hell.
Overall - and with no sour grapes, I swear - I keep telling myself that I'm better off having moved on. And I thank all the editors of the various publications that today keep my work out there in the public eye on a regular basis - where it hopefully will do some good.
