I suppose you already know Owen asked me to step into your shoes as director of Oxtales. The direction will be a bit different from when you were here, but that's what we artists do—put our own spin on things. Right? That's what makes it “our own work.”
After the Snopes debacle, I thought it best to cool it for a while and tone down the controversy. Quite frankly, I don't think Oxford was ready for that much controversy. But I'm sure you knew how I felt after our many discussions and arguments. No hard feelings?
COP is still whooping it up, but they've apparently found someone else to harass and have left us alone—at least for the time being.
Hang in there. We're all pulling for you. I'm sorry you didn't plead out.
