Jancee Dunn Polls the Experts Q: Someone has done something objectively horrible to you, but your friend is still close to that person. How can you tell her how much that bugs you?
A: "It's up to you to distance yourself from the wrongdoer rather than expecting your friend to do it."
— Anita L. Allen, professor of law and philosophy at the University of Pennsylvania Law School
"Her maintaining the friendship is convincing evidence that she isn't a true friend. Just tell her directly, and be prepared to downgrade her from 'friend' to 'pleasant acquaintance.'"
— Jack Marshall, president, ProEthics
