RE: Rene Moreno

By  |

Tim Rogers was noble enough to apologize to Mr. Moreno on behalf of the magazine, not because any offense was meant – it assuredly was not – but because offense was taken. I wrote the story, so the criticism of its language (in the many comments on his post) rightly falls on me.

The words and phrases in question occur in a story whose whole point is the bearing of Mr. Moreno’s accident on the way he plays the lead role in Richard III – the relation between his life and his art. I hope that his objections to my story, as well as this exchange on FrontBurner, will correct my insensitivities and omissions in that regard and add further understanding to his accomplishment. The play opens tonight. I suggest that you get a ticket soon.
