I rather doubt that anyone took offense, severe or otherwise, at your
widely read and appreciated reports of satellite launch activities at

On the other hand, rude behavior is still simply that.  Personally, I don't
believe that rude behavior ought to be condoned, whether it is on the part
of, for example, our national political or business leaders or by long-time
contributors to AMSAT and amateur satellite efforts.


By the way, what do think my company does, anyway?
