I’d rather come to an understanding of why it’s offensive, because if I’m able to cause so much upset without even knowing why, I reckon that I’m liable to do it again: unless you help me, I can’t learn from my mistakes.

I’m in the process of removing the article now, but I’d appreciate it if you’d e-mail or call me and we’ll work it out. I’ve already sent an e-mail to Anne to apologise and to invite comment.

Sorry again.
