      > President Obama is a graduate of Harvard Law School, and Henry Gates is a professor at Harvard. Not only should it not surprise you that they would know one another, but from his very first comment on the matter, the President made no secret of the fact that he and Gates were "friends."

      > However, my point is that your statement was: "ACCORDING TO ALL COUNTS, the President called the Governor who called the State Attorney General who called the local District Attorney" yet you haven't provided ONE count where anyone, other than you, has so much as suggested any such thing.

      > Instead, this alleged exact chain of communication, supposedly reported by everyone the planet, has been reduced to "Some attorney, whose name you don't know, apparently said that he heard ..."

      > Nope, sorry... that's not true either. What you're referring to was merely a press release which said: "The City of Cambridge, the Cambridge Police Department, AND PROFESSOR GATES acknowledge that the incident of July 16, 2009 was regrettable and unfortunate."

      > That's not any form of "joint apology from the Mayor's office and the Cambridge P.D." - it's a comment from all involved, INCLUDING PROFESSOR GATES, that the incident was "regrettable and unfortunate" which it certainly appears to have been for all concerned.
