On April 28, 2006 Lansing State Journal reported, "The Michigan State University professor who came under fire for calling a Muslim student group 'dissatisfied, aggressive, brutal, and uncivilized slave-trading Moslems' in an e-mail has issued a partial apology. In a letter, published today in the State News, MSU's student newspaper, mechanical engineering professor Indrek Wichman wrote that he had used 'tactless and hyperbolic language' in the e-mail he sent to the Muslim Students' Association on Feb. 28."
