Time to get the facts on Martin Taylor

I’ve talked to Martin Taylor several times in the past few years. He has a great personal story — the son of a Baptist minister and civil rights activist, who named him after Martin Luther King Jr. — and he had an amazing career trajectory.

I hope that his sudden ejection from Microsoft wasn’t because of anything unpleasant. Either way the company owes the public a better explanation of why it abruptly let go one of its most prominent evangelists.

On a positive note, Ben Romano’s report on Taylor’s departure finally displaced Saturday’s wire story about a topless Texas teacher as the most-read story at seattletimes.com.
