Sheriff Keith Royal did not ask me to clarify who had possession of a list of residents with concealed weapons permits mentioned in my blog post, “Making a concealed weapons list, checking it twice.” I did it because it was the right thing to do.
That earned me a rap on the knuckles from Jeff Pelline, but I prefer my approach to the lame excuse he offered up recently after Liz Kellar of The Union called him out for misspelling her name and that of DA candidate David Alkire. (She could have added Grass Valley Councilman Jason Fouyer to the list, but she didn’t.)
Pelline’s excuse? Sierra Foothills Report is a “personal blog,” he replied at 11:37 a.m. on Jan. 28, apparently absolving him of any mistakes he makes but granting him license to criticize other bloggers who err.
What a standup guy.
