Next from Michael Richards...

Bob Baker envisions Michael Richards' next apology, exclusively at Native Intelligence:

November 21, 2006

From: Elliot Forget, senior partner, Dodge & Retreat Consulting
To: Michael Richards
Re: Your follow-up apology

Mr. Richards,

In response to your phone call today expressing a desire for a broader, more populist response to the unfortunate incident, I have drafted the following. We suggest releasing it to the media at 10 a.m. Wednesday so that its broadcast on Thanksgiving Eve and publication on Thanksgiving Day will draw greater exposure at a time of year when media are desperate for news....

See the whole thing over there.
