Update on Mark Shurtleff’s Comments From Sam Antar’s Blog

Sam Antar posted this on his blog today regarding Mark Shurtleff’s letter about Sam. He says he just received notification from blogger.com TODAY that there was a comment waiting for approval by him. I reiterate my earlier concern: Why didn’t Shurtleff contact him directly via phone or email?

Blog Update Note (11/15/07): I received the following request from Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff to post a comment on my blog today. In a letter addressed to “to whom it may concern,” dated November 8, 2007, written by Mark Shurtleff, Utah Attorney General, and released by Overstock.com through a press release on November 14, 2007, he claimed:

I tried to post this letter as a comment on Mr. Antar’s blog but Mr. Antar apparently refused to post it.

However, I just received Mr. Shurtleff’s comment today and posted it. Please note the date and time of the email.

I will respond to Mark Shurlteff soon. In the mean time, keep speculating.
