Just got a mail from Mrs. McKenna. Odd to say this, but it ended up being quite a nice night there, albeit one which was alternately incredibly uncomfortable and tense. The things we came up with as distractions... Well, let's just say that I ended up having to go over every detail since I vanished from the Washington scene four years ago again with her, and then we moved on discussing the health care bill and then into every other mutant-rights activity in the country we could come up with. I believe I'm going to have West Wing backing to bring to the table in a couple of the more stubborn 'dialogs' going on in DC now. Kind of stunning, really, given it was mutant activists who started all of this. But, then, I geuss it gave her more of a chance to see what her husband had already seen - that we're not all like that.

Of course, when we got the call that the girls were coming home the photo albums got brought out and she ended up badgering me about my plans for children, which was... interesting.

What are you up to downstairs, anyways? You're concentrating so hard all I can get is the feel of grease on your hands.

Look, it occurs to me that I said some things that were unwarrented yesterday, and I'd like to apologize. I didn't mean to say that you all didn't know what you were doing. It's just, well, it's complicated.

I've been out with the X-Men twice, and both times, things went wrong. Things that the voice in the back of my head is saying that shouldn't be the case if I was with other cops, more experienced troops, trained professionals. Because that's who trained me, went into the field with me, taught me what I know.

And the X-Men aren't that. They're all young amatuers, with a training program put together by each other. Is that really true? No. But when you come from a professional organization like, say, the RCMP, it's hard to break that mindset, and the first two missions reinforced that. Unfortunately, you got the rough side of it because I was scared about what was going to happen. I was sure that as long as we sat tight, the real professionals would come down, and those carefully trained and experienced men and women would have the answers.

Turns out, without you guys, neither of them would have made it home to their parents. I let my guilt and fear get in the way of my judgement, and in doing so, used you as the target. So I'm sorry for that.
