This Week in Apologies:10/17 - 10/23

Well its Friday..  Must mean its time to Apologize..

Well, no not us..

Hell will genuinely freeze before we ever apologize for anything we ever write or express here at A&G..

We put ideas and opinions across and do so with conviction and sincerity..  You either agree or you don't..

Still a free country.. It said so in the papers..
But in this cowardly PC society, pretty much everyone else apologizes even though a small percentage are valid offenses and even a small percentage of "I'm sorry' is sincere...

So grab a bucket of cold fried chicken and a long tall glass of non non-fat chocolate milk, relax and let's take a look at this week's offerings...
