In a thread a few weeks ago, I referred to Laurence O as an experienced fool. I should not have done that. Although Laurence O is certainly a man of experience, he is no fool.

I have much more respect for him than he realizes. I apologize for the name-calling.

I read this and just wanted to say that - truly, what a wonderful display of integrity and character.
All the best,

Good for you Bill. I agreed with your thoughts in general, but it did get a little creative in the verbiage. The word "fool" was out of line, but I understood your passion for the subject. It was a bit of a chicken/egg debate, and you put the interest of the individual performer in your basket. Not to rehash anything but I like hash with my eggs (that last line was meaningless but in keeping with the developing theme). I hope Laurence accepts your apology. I would like him to feel comfortable engaging in our discussions.

Bill, nice of you to make your apology.
Mr. O is one of the great guys in magic. He's been helping me on the QT quite a bit. I know him from meeting him, thanks to Jay Marshall, many years ago.

Here, here!

Now that's a tone and stance that I can get behind -- way to go Bill!

Just another example of why Bill is the class act he is and a fine example for others (myself included) to follow.

Please, I shouldn't have insulted the man in the first place.

Ah, I didn't mean to sound sycophantic (is that a word?). Since I'd weighed in on the original thread, thought I'd do the same here.

A very good man knows when he is wrong and rights that wrong .
Blessings+++,

God's grace rocks! It makes a good cups and balls routine look pretty boring in comparison.

It takes a real man to say an apology like Bill mentioned. He said it so warm, I am sure it has been accepted.

I'm just a guy who has a lot of cups and a passion for magic. I'm not an expert, just a student.

I just ran across your apology that I had not seen before.

Naturally since you accepted my apology for having reacted with irritation, I gladly (and late, sorry) publicly accept yours.
As we have exchanged very pleasant mail in the meantime, it seems a bit awkward to even speak about it now. Thank you to every one who did cheer any of us.
Just for anyone intrigued there is simply no issue between Bill and myself.
Just two guys with passion for good magic... so let's talk about that.

Bill you never lost a parcel of the respect I have for you.
Be well

Laurence:

Thank you very much. This means a lot to me.

And, of course, I accept yours as well.

Now, back to cups and balls!!!!!
