"I have called the Superintendent of the Green Bay schools and visited with her and I apologized," Ellis says. "I know that the Preble school is an excellent school, they have tremendous faculty, they're population base is way above average in terms of their SAT's, and I did not mean to infer, and I can see how they could, that I was bashing Preble. I am extremely sorry for that. I shouldn't have used Preble as an example, I have apologized to the principal of the school and I'm very sorry for any harm I may have done to their good name."
Translation: I got caught speaking the truth and now, I did not mean to infer, but I can see how they could think that I was bashing the school, blah, blah, blah.
