My apology to Hugh Masekela: He and Larry Willis gave the performance of a lifetime at the Dakota
Harry Colbert, Jr.
I take great pride in being a journalist.
I recognize the true honor bestowed upon me. I strive every day to be truthful, thoughtful and accurate and maintain the public's trust. It's a weighty job. Yes, in the past I have erred. I've left off a period at the end of a sentence here or there. I have missed a word that should have been capitalized – forgot to add an apostrophe ... nothing major, but errors nonetheless. It happens with every writer. You beat yourself up over it, maybe say a foul word (or few), but you move on.
