I Opened My Big Mouth Again and I'm sorry

I have a knack for opening my big mouth when I shouldn't. I don't know why I do it, but I do. I had vowed to not say anything publicly about the FS/GW Micro lawsuit. And then this afternoon, I made a joe that I shouldn't have made. It implied that I was taking sides, which was never the intent. All I was trying to do was to say that I was hungry and be topical, though I can understand how the inference was made.

My only opinion about the lawsuit is that innocent people are being hurt, a reality which, to me, is beyond unfortunate. Whose fault is that? It's not for me to say, I don't really know. All I know is I don't want to lose friends over this, and I fear that with my little joke and my genuine anger on behalf of those who are being innocently hurt (and I don't mean one side or the other in the lawsuit, I mean innocent bystanders), I may have lost at least one friend. I truly am sorry to anyone I may have offended, and I will absolutely not say anything publicly that even remotely hints at this situation. I value my friends far too much for that.
