Apologies

I'm sick of everyone who says something racist or sexist or behaves badly apologizing for it afterwards and then supposes that makes it all right. When did this start?



We've had Mel Gibson, Russell Crow, Hugh Grant twice, Don Imus and now Alec Baldwin. I know I'm leaving lots of people out. The thing is, I don't care about their apologies.

Dithering

This is hard for me because I'm so used to writing about writing on my own blog.
