    I did not mean to insult anyone.
    I was blithely stating the obvious as a lead into a point about
    the short-sightedness of the U.S. patent system.
    If anyone feels I made a statement of hubris, that was not my
    intent. I'm merely discussing the motiviations, the inertia
    behind the existing system, which I feel is not in the long term
    interest of the U.S., in any case.
