I received an apology


Remember my little tiff with Eli Broad's communications secretary, Karen Denne? Remember how she couldn't even get my name right? Well now I have to give her some props. Here's what I found in my mailbox:
From: Karen Denne

Apologies for misspelling your name!

Sincerely,
Karen Denne
Communications Officer
The Broad Foundation
Thanks Ms. Denne. You're OK in my book. Sorry if I bit back too hard. It was your boss I was after.

Clay Burrell has a nice review of the whole dust-up.

  1. Love the warm, human, personal touch. I can see how she got the job of Communications Officer: an incomplete sentence and an exclamation point!
