Just finished an article on the political affinities between Palestinians & Kashmiris. It’s always so educational to write about an issue–you learn more than your readers–but when you hand it to the editor you tremble that s/he will say “No, that is not what I meant at all” & then dump it in the reject basket. You have to rise above your ego in politics but lordy lordy is it tough when someone is judging your words.
