I do regret offending certain people.
I told (the sources) the story would be about both a post-9/11, Arabs in America kind of thing and racial profiling. The quotes showed they at least tacitly agreed with my column.

This is innocent people being attacked by an SUV, driven by a man who was doing it for retaliation for treatment of Muslims around the world. To me, that spells terrorism.
