You are absolutely right, of course. I regretted it the moment I hit the
send key. The next morning I told my wife that I was afraid to turn on my
computer, and she immediately said, "Who have you offended now?" She is
Jewish and the chair of a regional diversity project, and after 40 years
she knows my weaknesses.

I am sorry this has belatedly upset the tenuous tranquility of this list.
If anyone wishes to further excoriate me, I would request for the sake of
others on the list that you do it to my personal address.
