An apology
By PHOENIX STAFF  |  August 29, 2007
Our cover story of June 20, by Adam Reilly, reported on obsessive levels of hate some Red Sox fans generate over Boston Globe columnist Dan Shaughnessy. The article included a highly offensive reference to his wife, published by an irresponsible sports blogger. Dr. Shaughnessy is both a mother of three children and highly regarded psychologist practicing in her hometown of Newton. The slur should never have been written or repeated, and the following week the paper carried an apology for having republished it in the Reilly article. We are sorry for any distress or embarrassment caused to Dr. Shaughnessy.
