Dear Rick,

Ever had one of those days?

You're absolutely right to be offended by the tone of my reply. It was
hasty, obnoxious, and ill-considered on just about every level I can think
of. I had no right at all to treat your posting with such cheap contempt:
There are several aspects of it that I disagree with, but instead of the
measured response you deserved, you had to put up with the infantile
smart-arsed knee-jerk rantings of a complete boor.

Please accept my sincere and heartfelt apology, which I'm also taking the
liberty of forwarding to the List.

Warren Sproule.
