Necessary Apologies?
Who else should say they're sorry?...
[Chris Field] 5/10/04

Much has been made of "needed" apologies over the last few weeks -- especially apologies from President Bush. The latest demand for a Bush apology, to which the White House acquiesced, came from the Left when they cried that the President must say "I'm sorry" for the apparent humiliation of Iraqi prisoners.

This prompted me to think of some apologies I would like to hear. But I'm not holding my breath.

John Kerry should apologize for his self-admitted war crimes.

Oh, now he says he didn't commit war crimes? Then he should apologize for making such a gross accusation.

Ted Kennedy, did he ever apologize to the family of Mary Jo Kopechne? If so, great. If not, shouldn't he?

The cast and writers of "Friends" ought to feel at least a tinge of guilt for wasting such a great TV time slot for the last 10 years.

Some fellow conservatives have mentioned to me that leading conservative GOPers who supported Specter in the GOP primary need forgiveness.

The Supreme Court, for molding the Constitution to their views to rule actions such as killing babies and having sex, owes the nation a giant "I'm sorry."

Whoopi Goldberg has wasted a lot of oxygen being painfully unfunny; an apology from her would go a long way toward making up for that.

Saddam Hussein owes apologies to a great number of people for being ... well ... Saddam Hussein.

China's treatment of dissenters, Christians, baby girls, and every child after the firstborn warrants a demand that they "get right" with the world.

Critics of Mel Gibson's "The Passion of the Christ" were awfully loud -- and awfully wrong -- about the possibility of incidents of anti-Semitism that could occur after people saw the "hateful" movie. They, at the very least, owe Gibson a public apology.

These are just a few ideas that popped into my head Friday morning. I'm sure more will come... CRO
