Apparently in your frenzy to blast Kelly Siegler for her use of the word "Jew" as a verb (um, 20 years ago), you seemed to have neglected this little tidbit from Judge Lykos' past. And I'm really shocked that you were unaware that this story was out there.
The New York Times certainly seemed aware of it, but our local Houston paper didn't?
Now, it seems to me that an incident where Kelly wasn't aware of the offensive nature of her words twenty years ago is much less offensive than Lykos willfully showing her true feelings in open court and on the record.
Kelly immediately apologized for her actions.
Lykos steadfastly stuck by her feelings.
Which one is more offensive?
And more importantly, Mr. Bernstein, how on earth did you miss this?
Or did you?
NOTE: The search for the articles that Alan Bernstein from the Chronicle missed took an incredible amount of effort and research to find. Not only did I have to plug in the term "Jewish" into google.com, I also had to plug in the term "Lykos". Obviously, this was waaaaaaaay too difficult for the Chronicle staff to look into. Thanks to my anonymous poster for pointing this incident out.
Hey, y'all don't think that the Chronicle intentionally ignored this story because they are biased, do you?
