    How WRONG can you be???!!! Mark did not begin working for the St. Petersburg Times in 1973. He began working for the Evening Independent, part of the Times Publishing Company. I don’t think Mark became a Times reporter until about 1988 when the Indy folded so the Times could take their boxes and try to go head to head with the Tampa Tribune. Even today that effort to bury the Tribune is not over and is still in the workes. Mark has always been an outstanding journalist and he continued that at the St. Pete Times, now operating under a new name of the Tampa Bay Times, another change designed to get rid of the Tribune.

    I thought the Times was interested in getting the story right. I think the blurb above is beneath the standards of those established by the late Nelson Poynter. If you think folks won’t notice this selly, self-serving and very big ERROR, think again. I believe it is worth a CORRECTION.
