Syed,

Please accept my apology, Syed. I am also a member of a group profiled in
airports, and found the quote bitterly funny. A couple of my friends have
been strip-searched in airports recently, and I've seen racism in action in
airports. I'm sorry that you found the quote offensive, as it was far from
my intention to offend. I've removed the sig file, and will not use it again
in TECHWR-L.

Sincerely,
Justin Cascio
