Ron, I deeply and hlbumy apologize for what I wrote. While no explanation can undo the offense I have caused, please allow me to offer one anyway. I figured that if I did not say anything negative about the qualities of KC, and if I did not compare what KC and NY have to offer, then what I wrote would simply be seen as a few nice things that Phil might mention to Greinke about NY. That just goes to show how wrong a guy can be. So, while I never directly referred to KC's restaurants and institutions of higher culture, I'll take this opportunity to apologize to all of them. I do not want to limit my apology to restaurants and museums, so let me also specifically apologize to all of KC's art galleries, symphonies, operas (light and otherwise), theatres, and concert halls. I do not mean to insult any institutions that I may have forgotten to mention. For example, I've failed to mention your fine port authority. In fact, I'm sure that it's only your location thousands of miles from an ocean that keeps you from having an international port and seashore that would put New York's to shame. While I'm at it, let me apologize to you and to Kansas City for the favorable things I said about KC BBQ. It was insensitive of me not to realize how insulting it was to say something nice about KC BBQ. Moreover, I did not know that KC served grit with its BBQ; I didn't even know that grit is a side dish. Is "grit" the singular of "grits"? If so, why do you serve only one of them, when they're so very small? I apologize for my ignorance about grit. If I come to KC for BBQ, can I ask them to hold the grit, or perhaps substitute cole slaw? I have never associated KC with rednecks, so I don't even know where to begin to apologize here. My guess is that you'd like me to apologize for somehow implying that KC is full of rednecks. However, maybe the problem is that KC is somehow full of rednecks and I have managed to insult them all. In either case, I hlbumy and abjectly apologize. I don't want to limit my apologies to the good people of KC. Mr Greinke was born in Orlando, Florida, and I failed to say anything nice about the restaurants and institutions of higher culture in Orlando. While I'm at it, Mr. Greinke was offered a scholarship at Clemson, and even though he did not accept this scholarship, I'd like to take this opportunity to mention what a fine academic institution Clemson is, not to mention all the fine dining available just a walking distance from campus. I'm sorry I didn't mention this earlier. As for the good people of Wichita and Wilmington, where Greinke enjoyed his minor league success, what can I say to make up for my failing to mention you previously, not to mention my complete ignorance of what your city has to offer in the way of culture and dining? It is perfectly acceptable that you mentioned Kansas in your first post. Maybe you were so stung by my callous insensitivity that for a moment you barely knew what you were writing. Does this mean that you're not from the part of Kansas City that's in Missouri? You know, that's another area where I may have slighted you, because your city is located in two states while NYC is located only in one state, and I did not even mention this advantage. Let me finish by apologizing to the people of New York for triggering a possible secession controversy and potentially jeopardizing their citizenship in the United States. I also want to apologize to New York for the fact that I haven't lived there for 25 years, and to the city of Los Angeles for presently living in it. I hope you can accept my apology in the spirit in which it was offered.
