Sorry about that

I'm inclined to apologize only for things I'm responsible for, such as the existence of a blog that is wasting some of your valuable time. But others go beyond that:

Something moved her to apologize to the black woman for slavery.

“For two strangers riding a train to Oakland to have that conversation about race, it wouldn’t have been possible if Obama hadn’t been elected,” she said. “I always felt open with my colleagues, but to say to a stranger on the train, ‘Hey, I’m sorry about slavery,’ that just doesn’t happen.”

(Via Karol Sheinin, who's embarrassed for everyone involved.)
