Thanks to all of our readers who have written offering to make contributions to Steve Gardner or otherwise expressing interest in helping him. We tracked down Mary Laney, the freelance reporter who wrote the Chicago Sun-Times story that Deacon linked to earlier today. Here’s her message:
I’m glad you picked up my column on Steve Gardner. He certainly deserves better than he’s gotten for speaking up about what happened on that Swiftboat those years ago. I’m not at liberty to give out his address or phone number, but he has allowed me to give you his email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. I hope a great job can be found for this man.
We’ve already forwarded one message with information regarding available jobs. Let’s see if we can help a friend in need.
