The caller was frustrated, yelling as he took issue with our recent news coverage.
“What do you people do there?” he asked angrily.
I was taken aback — and insulted. What do you mean, what do we do? We report the news! Oh, and field the occasional furious, confusing or delusional phone call.
I tried to explain how and why we report the stories we do, but he wasn’t having it. He’d made up his mind to be mad, and nothing I said was going to change it.
