But perhaps Uson means to say that she doesn't think it should be personal. It's typical of Uson to resort to that argument; to say that she was merely showing matters of fact, and to suddenly detach herself from the opinions she airs on her blog. But no matter what she says, her efforts to tarnish the reputation and legacy of Kris' father are clear as day. And to a father's daughter, that's personal.
