I believe the good doctor regretted doing this considering the commotion that resulted, because he seemed to avoid the press from then on.
I was kind of anticipating your arrival on this thread, since Baxter seems to be a focal point of yours!
A few questions:
What do you think Phillips regretted doing? Answering the reporters questions?
Do you know what the reporter asked, and what Phillips replied?
What do you think about Baxters summary? To your mind, did he misrepresent what Phillips had said? Can we know, even?
