Remember when D Magazine
pissed off mightily former Dallas Morning News
columnist John Anders by reporting that he'd been fired instead of opting to take early retirement? Well, guess who wrote a lengthy piece on the wonders of a world beyond journalism in D
's June 2001 issue? The magazine even let Anders take a roundhouse swing at the folks publishing the piece ("It would have been nice if someone had bothered to call..."). And then, at the end of the article, D
offers an apology for getting John's Austin-based retirement off on the wrong foot ("D Magazine
was obviously wrong..."). Nothing like a freelance paycheck to make folks act like they're best friends.
