Shocking. So much bull crap, such little space.

I was under the impression that Maxworks was a certified cooperative and that its members owned the property of 717 W. Maxwell St., including its founder, Mr. Tyner White.

Now with one flip article [The Business, April 8], years of agonizing and heroic court battles with city, university, and wrecking companies is reduced to "commune" status; and ragtag at that (riffraff), according to dictionary and Ms. Isaacs.

This must be what it's like to be senile. History is one day rewritten under the guise of some merciful recognition.

So . . . and now instead of having the honor and privilege to be voted president of this grand cooperative (verifiable) and secretary another time, which is why I still am keeper of documents, according to Ms. Isaacs, I was merely bunking in a "rented" building, having joined a commune with a "reigning prophet"!!!

Someone help. I need a shovel to dig myself out of this expletive. And save my shoes, it's coming in fast.

Mom, dad, I swear to God, this woman is a freaking liar.

PS: How's about an apology or retraction from this crucifier of the truth.

Deanna Isaacs replies:

Sorry if my story offended Ms. Cole. As far as I know, my account is accurate.
