Wow, I had no idea my comment would be taken as an ethnic slur. It
CERTAINLY wasn't intended as one. It was merely intended to be a metaphor
for my opinion on Frank Lew's hard headedness. Based on Frank's response, I
believe he took it in the way I intended. I consider myself one of the most
color blind, ethnic blind, gender blind, sexual orientation blind person I
have ever known. This is the first time in my life I have ever been accused
of authoring an ethnic slur. Absolutely, my apologies to all who were or
might have been offended.
