[sickening obscene joke about murder deleted]


Guido has posted a couple of things he has regretted, retracted, and
apologized for, as have others.  He has poked at me and I have poked
back.  But your 'joke' is farther over the line of decency than
*anything* I can remember reading here in years.

I think you should publically and formally retract, apologize, and
maybe get conseling on how to restrain the impulse to write *and send*
such things; or stay away forever.
