I'm so sorry!

Okay. In my last post, I referred to Montgomery as "Monkey Town." This is what I've always heard it as, and I've never really thought much about it. Well, Jenn (smartest and best friend EVER) brought to my attention that "Monkey Town" is, in fact, some type of racial slur. (She did get a good laugh at my expense out of it, though.) People, I am so, so sorry! I never even KNEW that, and I just thought it was a nickname. I just wanted to apologize to anyone who read my last post. I am not a discriminatory or racist person- please believe that! It was my own ignorance and lack of "real world" knowledge.
