Great insight, as far as I'm concerned.

My mistake was tumultuous - an error of the highest order. I had engaged my mouth (or fingers on the keyboard) before engaging my brain.
Hell I'm guilty of that too

Thanks to ebd10 for the initial post that confirmed that I was not the only person who believed that Zumbo needed a way back.

In all honesty, all I did was post on a few boards, exchanged emails and made some phone calls. Rich was out of town when the SHTF, but backed my play on boards that were calling for Zumbo’s head and hinting that my own would look better severed from my body for making the offer. As publisher, Rich had the last word and he not only agreed with the plan, but also attended the class himself.

Pat provided the training and Sheriff Ken provided the venue. In short, a lot of folks were involved in doing what we believed was the right thing to do.

I'm glad that you saw it through. I enjoyed the article in SWAT and look forward to seeing Zumbo in your pages again sometime. As far as making his way back; there was only ever one Perfect Man and they nailed Him for it. Zumbo's not perfect, I'm not perfect (just ask my wife) neither are any of those that condemned him. He voiced an opinion that was born of ignorance. He has paid dearly for his lack of knowledge. He has also learned the truth. Now if we could just get him to do an article about hunting Muleys with an SR-25 or something in 6.5 Grendel, we may be on to something!

Long overdue to give the man a second chance. Let he who is without sin...
