I suppose he was right. I was reminded of a moment after our Diana story was published, when one of the more aggressive photographers approached me outside the Gazette office and, in a rare moment of modesty, offered congratulations.
"Say, 'tween you and me," he asked, "how'd you get those photos?"
I told him about the yacht, about Ahab, about the chase, about feeling guilty and deciding to back off.
The snapper chuckled. "You backed off on Diana?" he said, barely containing himself. "What's wrong with you? I woulda parked a fuckin' helicopter on her deck."
