This references the RE: Squadron Commodore message I posted today
IT REALLY WAS AN ATTEMPT AT JUST CASUAL FRIENDLY HUMOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It obviously touched some sore spots, and I have apologized privately to those who notified me.
I REALLY DON'T CARE WHAT TERMS ARE USED, IT WAS POKING FUN AT THE DIFFERENCES I HAVE SEEN BETWEEN EAST / WEST COAST USE.
AT THE TIME I WAS NOT AWARE THAT THERE WAS SOME HISTORY BEHIND IT
<thank you to Mr. Sills who filled me in on the background>
BUT IT WAS ALL JUST A JOKE (ATTEMPTED) THAT I FORGOT TO PUT THE SMILEY FACE ON
YOU MAY ALL STAND DOWN FROM THE WARPATH
BRUISED FEELINGS CAN BE SATISFIED THAT I HAVE APPLOGIZED FOR THE POSTING
and I will be more careful about attempting humor in the future
IF YOU STILL NEED TO REACH OUT AND HIT SOMEONE my private email is
I THINK THE LIST HAS SEEN ABOUT ENOUGH OF THE ISSUE
