Christine Daniels Retransitioning Back To Mike Penner
I knew Christine Daniels, and considered Christine a friend. She faded out of my life this time last year — I had no idea why she didn’t return my calls or emails.
Well, L.A. Observed is reporting in their piece Mike Penner returns to Los Angeles Times. The gist of the story is that Christine Daniels is retransitioning back to Mike Penner. According to LA Observed‘s Kevin Roderick, the Los Angeles Times‘ sports editor Randy Harvey said this:
We’re looking forward to Mike’s byline appearing in the paper and on the website with increased frequency. He continues to be a valued member of our sports staff.
I expect a lot of reprocussions from this bit of news about Mike — some headlines I’ve seen already:
I already know I’m not going to be thrilled when the conservative “Christian” media gets a hold of this story.
Frankly, I’m overwhelmed…I’m reeling from this news, both from a personal and a professional perspective. I imagine that when my feelings are a bit more settled about this news, I’ll write about this from a very personal perspective. I hope Mike won’t mind.
Perhaps I should should let y’all know though, I’m taking this news really hard. I miss my friend a lot.
