He’s right here waiting

Note to self: Do not piss off Richard Marx:

As I wrote in a story last week on the Morning News, Marx — the Chicago-born singer best known for the 1980s soft-rock hits “Hold On to the Nights” and “Right Here Waiting” — demanded a sit-down with me after I called him “shameless” in a blog post for a local TV station’s news site.

“Would you say that to my face?” he emailed me. “Let’s find out. I’ll meet you anywhere in the city, any time. I don’t travel again until the end of the week. Let’s hash this out like men.”

And oh, the hash that followed.

    I’ve been called much worse than “shameless” in local newspapers. One writer even had the gall to accuse me of reading his letters to the editor. How dare he!
