Your apology is sufficient and accepted. Given the current political situation in our Nation's Capital, may I suggest a more cautious use of the the letter "W"? As I'm certain you are aware to call someone a "W" can lead to a demand for immediate satisfaction, and quite rightly so. As we say in The West, "Them's fightin' words, pardner."

Just the other evening Mr. Hardrock Hammes became embroiled in fisticuffs with Mr. Jump-up John outside of the Idaho Legion Hovel after Mr. Hammes decided that Mr. John had called him "W." It was, of course, a misunderstanding as Mr. John (who stutters) actually said, "W-w-w-w-where's the toilet?" Fortunately, Mr. John struck Mr. Hammes on the head with a shovel and no one was actually injured. Mr. Hammes bought Mr. John several drinks afterwards, including one called a "Saturday Night Special." When last seen Mr. Hammes and Mr. John were sitting together, arms around each other, weeping over their newly-found friendship.

Thanking you for your candor in this matter, I remain,

Your servant,
