Re: Gum Humidity Question


I'm truely sorry your wife was diagnosed with cancer.  I can only imagine
how difficult it has been for both of you.

However, I will not apologize for my joke.  It had innocent (and very
silly) intentions, and was by absolutely no stretch of the imagination a
cheap shot at people with cancer.

Now, as far as insensitivity goes, I'm going to gently disagree with you
there.  If you want to judge me based on a few emails, where tone and
intention are misinterpreted over half the time, that's your business.

Ironically, I think Katherine was one of the few that actually got the
joke, and she took it very well...much better than a few others.  I won't
go into the details of the 6 or so hateful emails I got from other list
members last night.

Thank you, Katherine, for taking my post as it was, and not warping into
something it wasn't.
