We, The Undersigned, believe that Barry Shlachter, columnist for the McClatchy-owned Fort Worth Star-Telegram should be fired unless he prints an apology in his column for mocking the private burial service of Arthur J. McKee, distinguished and heroic fireman of FDNY Ladder 148. We feel Mr. Shlachter's unnecessary inclusion of private burial details in a story wholly unimportant to Fort Worth's business community was hurtful to the business reporting reputation of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and action must be taken for his editorial behavior.
