A Public Apology

In the course of researching the James Watt quote used by Bill Moyers, I obtained some help from Reverand Austin Miles, whose book the Grist author cited as his source for the quote. I e-mailed Rev. Miles for additional source information, and he replied both swiftly and helpfully. He even replied to my follow-up e-mail.

Unfortunately, despite Rev. Miles aid, in a post below I treated him as coarsely as Moyers or Scherer. Although it is my current suspicion that the quote is most likely not historically accurate, it was rude of me to come so close to insulting the man who had been so helpful in my research.

Reverand Miles, I'm sorry.
