When I click on your link to previous Mark Trail posts, I get Amy Powell's Linkedin page. (???)

Read her blog post. Wanted to see if I needed to apologize for any particularly snarky words left at one of your AB-MarkTrail posts. Hope not.

Wrong link — I fixed it.

That the storyline turned Abbey Powell into a damsel in distress — tripping and falling, losing her glasses, saved by Mark and told to run while he helps the pilot — it’s all pretty retrograde. I think Ms. Powell is being incredibly tactful.
