I could start with a “what were you thinking of” type statement, but this is much bigger than that. What you did was heartless, insensitive and permanent. This is one of those times when you can’t take it back because your words, thoughts and, worse, actions speak for themselves.

Alicia was a beautiful person in mind, body and spirit. But you decided it would be OK to trample and trash that spirit by your words. I believe you knew exactly what you were doing when you allowed this story to be printed — a rare opportunity to tap into the big bucks that normally are reserved for the National Enquirer.

Now it is time, Mr. Haley, for you to put on your hiking boots and head for the proverbial hills permanently. Don’t let the door hit your backside on the way out!
