I don't think you need to insult me. You finally got around to answering my original question, which is whether Arirang originates from Korea or here, which would tell us whether they'll acknowledge Thanksgiving or not by changing their schedule.
Sorry, Bo, insult was never the intent, sardonic wit was, although it appears to not have been perceived as such. I was lead to believe that the inclusion of "smiley's" was a universally recognized sign of humorous intent when communicating on this newfangled interweb. Allow me to extent my most heartfelt and profuse apologies if I, in any way, appeared to be disrespectful.
