My First Retraction

November 25, 2007

It has come to my attention that a phrasing I used in the last post I created has caused some feelings of an unpleasant nature. So, I in no way meaning to cause such a thing, am here to print a full retraction of that phrasing. I referred to the people whom were born in the thirties as “poor bastards.” In my attempt to add a humorous turn of the phrase was alas unsuccessful, to say the least. Ironically, I was writing about this group of people, in part, in the context of pointing out that their have been many injustices made to this particular group. My post, was an effort to share that in my humble opinion this group, has more than most gone through more than their fair share of what society has to offer in the negative. For example; The Depression and World War II, and my specific point of not being given a name for their generation, just to name a few. But, I digress… My main point here is to retract the phrase, “poor bastard” in reference to people born in the thirties, and that is what I am doing here. It will not happen again. I hope my humble explanation sheds a little light on the subject. Thanks for listening.
