No, not the first time. Ten years ago they did a one-page feature, which I was quite unhappy with. The attempt was to do a humor piece, which was fine, except it was done with made-up dialog in a supposed 'interview' format.
Writing humor is very difficult and the piece made me look like a real jerk (quiet in the Peanut Gallery!). It's one thing to look like a jerk in your own words
, but I didn't appreciate the fictive approach.
Barry Gabay was meticulous in conveying what I said to him, even if not direct quotes.
