Don’s Note to Audible Employees on Capitol Attack

In an email to Audible employees around the globe the day after the Jan. 6 siege of the U.S. Capitol, Don condemned the undermining of democracy and the “complicity of many elected leaders” that led to the deadly siege on the Capitol.

As a longtime student of words and their capacity to define the human condition, and as someone who lived the dark days of 1968 through 1973 and has spent the past 46 years either writing words professionally or working with so many others to create a company that now conveys words to millions, I will pause to observe that yesterday’s tragedy was part of a dark continuum of anti-democratic actions that included the support and complicity of many elected leaders beyond Trump.
