I sent the following e-mail to fellow blogger Fred Keller just a little while ago:
I want to personally apologize to you for the malicious and incredibly heartless comments that were directed at you earlier tonight on my blog.
Though we’ve met only once, I know you to be a humble, decent, upstanding citizen and an exemplary father and husband. You were in no way deserving of the evil comments that were made about you tonight.
Those remarks were the only blemish on an exercise I intended to provide compelling and hopefully humorous insights on this holiday occasion. Though we are thick-skinned, I understand how hurtful the comments were. I accept responsibility for not removing them in time before you and others saw them.
As I have stated in the past, some individuals are fully capable of making anonymous contributions that are thought-provoking and worthy of public scrutiny. This individual is not one of them.
How tragic is it that this individual has such little happiness in his life that he/she has to resort to the slimiest of tactics.
And yet, people like you and me are called mean-spirited when in reality, there’s plenty of hatred being manufactured on the left.
I know the comments of some poor, broken down, lonely nameless coward won’t deter you or anyone else, Fred. Even so, I wanted you to know how deeply sorry I am that this pathetic individual’s statement made it even for a second on my blog.
