A PUBLIC APOLOGY
I'm sorry. I am very, very sorry to all who were terribly hurt by my post-
Bipolar Planet. I extend this heartfelt apology. I never meant to hurt any of you.
I realized that I committed a serious offense when I posted my personal perceptions of Bipolar Planet, unmindful of the hurts they will bring to those who are already suffering from a terrible malady. It's like rubbing salt to an open wound.
Yes, we have freedom of expression, but this must be self limited by the countervailing rights of others to their own sense of dignity and due respect. I may have the best intentions in writing that post, but they can never mitigate nor justify the hurting of others nor of offending their sensibilities. As they say, "the road to hell is paved with all good intentions."
Again, I am really, terribly sorry for all the troubles I caused you all. Please forgive an old foolish man like me. The green blossom above is my peace offering to you all. God bless you all.
