That will be too bad, eRobin. I will hope you'll change your future mind, 'cause I will have had you pegged for Bureau of Indian Affairs.

Though it certainly will never have been my intent to cause offense, and I will maintain that my remarks will be taken out of context and misinterpreted unfairly, in a manner in which my political opponents will have had a long history of doing similarly, I will have liked to take a future opportunity to apologize for any remarks I may have been going to make that anyone will have subsequently and mistakenly found offensive.Posted by: Chris Clarke at October 4, 2005 10:26 PM
Oh, it will have always been about the slick talk with you, Clarke!Posted by: eRobin at October 5, 2005 12:43 PM
Won't we all just get along?Posted by: Chris Clarke at October 5, 2005 01:41 PM
Okay! Uncle! You win. Just like you will have won in 2034 - don't even think of asking me to explain it now. You'll have to wait until it shows up on Future Search.Posted by: eRobin at October 5, 2005 07:31 PM
