This article has been removed.
I’d like to apologize and take some time to explain why we removed this piece.
After a discussion with our newspaper’s Editor-in-Chief, managing staff and the author of the piece, I regret to say that we have made the decision to delete this piece from our database.
After publication, our team realized that much of the information lay in that space between reported fact and accurate personal experience. Though everything described was a true account of the author’s experience, some of the information relied on hearsay that could not be verified by those who work at this blog. For legal reasons, we then decided to remove the piece.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our team regrets the mistake and I sincerely hope that this decision will not deter you from visiting the blog in the future.
