I am sincerely sorry that certain out-of-context quotes culled and woven into the article from previous rock and roll interviews done with the author some time ago and the tone of the article make me appear to be anything other than someone who believes in and lives by the words "love thy neighbor."

I have a daughter I love and care about more than anything else on this earth, and I want the best for her. In fact, the only reason I'm involved in this campaign is because I want to help make this country a better, safer, and more compassionate place for my six-year-old daughter and all our girls and boys to grow up in. And, believe me, nothing would make me happier than to see one of our daughters grow up to become president one day very soon.

Ed Condran replies: Some of the quotes were taken from a chat at a suburban Philadelphia hoagie shop, which, as I wrote, occurred "on a Smithereens promo tour." Other quotes were collected throughout the last few months. I stand by the context.
