"The managing editor of the newspaper in Sarah Palin's hometown has left his job, just weeks after he wrote an editorial noting Alaska's protective 'deadly force' law in reference to the former governor's new neighbor, an author who is writing a book about her," reports AP.
Apparently there was something of an uproar after the column. To the effect that the editorial was "threatening and advocated violence," etc. Also apparently, the column had absolutely 100% totally nothing to do with the departure of the managing editor. "Just a strong coincidence."
It seems to me that the new, intrusive Palin neighbor, author Joe McGinniss, might have appreciated a little heads-up on the local legal situation. That he would move right next door seems self-evidently creepy, such that one does not know what plans prying eyes might have for the Palins.
