Rebecca Miller: Let Them Eat Cake!

Uncle Barky got an e-mail from ousted KXAS-Channel 5 meterologist Rebecca Miller. He runs the thing in its entirety, and it's worth a read. Just a highlight:

I sincerely apologize for not getting to you until now. Yesterday, I found out the station had decided not to renew my contract. Today, I met with Human Resources.

"But long ago, I had promised a friend I would help him today create a giant birthday cake for his daughter. We started shortly after noon, and we just finished at 8:15 p.m. I couldn't tell him, 'Let's do this another day.' How many birthdays do you get when you're 8? Anyway, I'm free and clear now, so I just sat down to catch up. My computer keyboard is covered with icing, but it smells good.

I only hope I accept my eventual firing with such grace. --Robert Wilonsky
