The apology and then some ridicule following on September 12th.

As part of the History Cooperative website a commentary regarding this speech can be found in the following paper entitled Doctrines of Discoveryby Eric Cheyfitz.

For further commentary about the above speech, I would encourage you to read the article,

If you have membership to Wicazo Sa Review, it can be found in the Spring 2006, Vol. 21 Issue 1, P97-126 or you can find the same article in the EBSCO system through your school or library system.
