^ No worries and anyway, you weren't alone in your interpretation.
This keeps happening to me. A few weeks ago in a West Wing thread, someone suggested a behind-the-scenes show at the UN. I suggested that it would be like a non sci-fi Babylon 5, then someone else pointed out that for it to be like B5, the UN would have to do various nasty power-grabbing things, like happened in B5, which the UN wasn't capable of doing. I replied something like 'Well, unless the Michigan Milita are right', thinking it was so evidently ridiculous that it didn't require a smiley. Buuuuuuut .... - well, guess the rest.
