ABSTRACT
The author relates several apologies offered by several people in the history. Apologies offered by people to their contemporaries for actions taken long before any of them were born strike the author as vacuous and more than a little exhibitionistic. The author states that events and practices eliciting apology are, in varying degrees, horrific, of course, but history is filled with others equally horrifying.
