You are correct.  I was careless, and I did misread the sentence in
question even after your first attempt to point out the error.

My error is particularly regrettable as it distracted attention away
from the substantial objection I have to your remarks, viz., that you
regularly set up a false dichtomy between formal logic/semantics and
real world ontology.  I apologize to you for the misrepresentation in
question and would ask you only to focus on the remainder of the
message, which I still stand by.
