Wilson Gray <hwgray at EARTHLINK.NET> replies to my comment:

Had I been able to predict the kind of response that my message would
elicit from you, I would have made a greater effort to clarify my
remarks. Unfortunately, I could not. Therefore, I ask only that you
accept my sincerest apologies. I regret the error.

Accepted, sir. <bow>

On the other hand, I found your remarks re telephony quite informative.

I'm glad they were helpful.

May I make a suggestion for your future reference? Given your quite
reasonable doubts about white people's familiarity with Black culture, I
found it not entirely consistent that you assumed that all the readers of
this list would be familiar with a hip-hop movie.
