Some need thicker skin if such a comment was taken seriously and
offended them.

John / WISPA... Wow, did I not even take into consideration the feelings
of others in a bad situation when I wrote a couple
one-handed comments.

I'm sorry for my piss-poor attitude from a couple of bad days in a row
bleeding over into my public statements here...

I meant the first statement to be taken as a figure of speechc but the
second was completely uncalled for, and for making it and
offending the list I'm sorry.

Rick

Rick,
This comment from you causes nothing but ill will and is uncalled for. I
want you to apologize on the list right now and mean it.
