CHICK PRIEST: Where I went wrong last week and in youth
Do any of you have as much trouble as I do admitting you’re wrong? Well, here goes. (Deep breath.) I was wrrrr... I was wrrrroo... I was wrong. (Gulp) Last week I practiced some irresponsible journalism.

Growing up in Anchorage, I was (and still am) a huge fan of Martin Buser. His wife, Kathy Chapoton, was a teacher in the school I atten...
