From the mother of a swimming sexual abuse victim:

“Ask good ol” Chucky if he would invite parents and swimmers, currently involved in arbitration, or past parents and swimmers who have participated with Big Swim, to meet with Congressman Miller so that the meeting is truly impartial, instructive, and beneficial.  Ask Mr. Wielgus to pony up to that sort of meeting.  Let your readers know that some families and swimmers would be delighted to pay their own way to such a meeting.  Then and only then will these meetings be balanced, fair, impartial, factual, and instructive.”

From swimmer-blogger Tony Austin:

“Did USA Swimming Executive Director Chuck Wielgus just start a ‘food fight’ with the press and swim bloggers?”,

(Austin misspells my name  — a common plague — and fails to give due credit to my collaborator, Tim Joyce.)
