Here's a letter from a Mads reader to Mads readers:
Dear Mads readers,
I would like to apologize for the two comments that I posted on the message board today [Setting The Record Straight] under the post concerning the graduation speaker. I made a misstatement based on conjecture in a subject about which I have little knowledge and zero experience. I responded to the flak that I appropriately took for making an ignorant statement and promptly put my other foot in my mouth. I would like to distance myself from these statements but, since I made them in the most public way possible and on a site that a decent percentage of this campus reads, I can only apologize for them and gladly accept the verbal thrashing or charitable neglect due to me on the message boards of this wonderful blog. Thanks for reading, Mads and Vassar family.
