Steph - thank you for your apology. I am truly grateful and I am very surprised. I do want you to know that your two comments were the last straw for me after receiving a number of offensive comments over the last few months - some of them also anti-Semitic but all of them hateful.
So today I closed my blog, my twitter account with nearly 3,000 followers, my Facebook page and my LinkedIn profile. I just want to leave public life and never again be subjected to the kind of comments you made, or any of the others have made, because it has been so gut-wrenching to read them. Very painful.
My family left a wonderful legacy in MGM and thru the Oscars. My uncle was not a pedophile, or a member of the Illuminati. He wasn't perfect - definitely no angel or a saint. But even Judy Garland's own daughter spoke about how much LBM did for Judy, and that JG often said cruel things when under the influence. Maybe check out Lion of Hollywood by Scott Eyman one day...It's an amazing story about a boy who went from fishing junk out of the freezing bay of St. John, NB to running the world's most amazing movie studio and giving so many people such incredible opportunities.
Anyway, Steph, I wish you and your family all the best. I am so happy you had the strength of character to apologize. I'll always remember it. I am sure if we met one day we would find we have more in common than differences. Be well... Alicia
