Political Apologies

The political fashion is to apologise for wrongs committed by people long dead against others also long dead. It makes no sense to confess to a crime you did not commit, or apologize for a wrong you did not do. Politicians try to curry favour with minorities by making empty apologies. On the other hand, I have to laugh at anyone who demands an apology for something that did not happen to them. They are just looking for excuses to feel offended, to feel sorry for themselves.
