Letter: Thanks to editor for his honesty

I sat down and read Jeff Burkhead’s Feb. 18 column a few days ago, and what a wonderful, well-written and enlightening column it was. Kudos to Jeff for his refreshingly honest and open disclosure of such an obviously painful piece of his past. Jeff’s sincerity and integrity rang true without any sense of self-pity or unnecessary blame and finger-pointing. Thank you for sharing a part of your life’s journey with us, Jeff, and may it be a cautionary tale to us all.
