Off to meet with the mayor -- who is upset with a story I wrote. Even when you talk to all the right people and gather all the necessary documents, stuff happens.
During the first month of my reporting job in what was then called West Paterson, I went to a political function where that mayor answered residents about testing kids for possible problems with chemical contamination. He later claimed he never said it, and since the function had all of his followers, no one else backed me up.
An early lesson about getting documentation. But even when you get it, you get slammed.
