Apology to Jack Mankin
I am indebted to this board to offer an apology for my thoughtless attack on another individual.
In Shawn's post, I pointed out that while he meant "dropped on my head" as uttering ludicrous statements, I took it to mean as brain-damaged," for reasons he failed to furnish a quotation of mine to put his statement in context. Had he given proof, the statement might have been avoided.
Besides, I always have felt the incessant need to defend my character, and perhaps, in doing so, I overreacted.
The reason for not offering an immediate apology was I could not get through since my computer did not work.
Let's both hope that time has allowed the situation to dissipate, and arguments return to mechanics, rather than character.
