  • Sorry not the hardest word after all

    In 1958, Connie Francis sang, “Who’s Sorry Now?” and later, Brenda Lee, Bo Diddley, The Platters and The Delfonics all sang, “I’m Sorry.”

    In today’s society, saying “I’m sorry” is the new “How are you?”

    We’ve come to expect it — demand it — of our fallen sports figures, politicians and celebrities, after which we, the public and all the talking heads on TV and radio, dissect each apology to judge whether we think the apologizer is sincere enough for our satisfaction.
