In the spirit of full disclosure, which is something that I believe all journalists must undertake, I wish to share the following:
Marion E. Best of Sullivan, Illinois, has graciously agreed to be my copy editor as often as she can.
All mistakes of a factual nature are mine and mine alone.
A portion of my travel expenses for covering the USA v. W.R. Grace criminal trial in Missoula, Mont. have been supplied by the generosity of the public health and asbestos victims community. There were absolutely no strings attached.
