His Name is Macaca
My fellow Virginians,
Someone has just e-mailed me something that will, I believe, go a long way towards vindicating me. As you can see above, Macaca is a legitimate name. Ask David, Joana, or either Veronica if they would take offense if someone said, "Hey, you, Macaca!" or "This job calls for a Macaca!" Of course they wouldn't.
I can't even say for sure that I haven't met one of these Macacas. That could be the reason the word slipped out of my mouth on that fateful day. I would ask any Virginians who might still be upset to consider that possibility, along with the other explanations we have provided.
My team has left messages with David Macaca, and the women Macacas as well -- hopefully we can set up an appearance with one of them. (If there are any other Macacas out there, please get in touch!)
