I heard from a v. reliable source that Howard's reply was included intentionally.
I'll bite...intentionally from Howard's orders or did the e-mailer include it unilaterally?
FWIW, I don't think what Howard wrote was that bad. It's not nice, and it shouldn't have gotten back to Gobbo, but I wouldn't really feel that offended if someone said that about me. Also, didn't Gobbo have an interview awhile ago where he basically just sheeeeet on a bunch of pros?
