No more apologies

To the Editor:
“That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.” Doesn’t seem to me to be something that would be hard to say.

More often than not when I turn on the TV I’m seeing someone demanding that someone else apologizes for something they said. I think that most of us, whose brain is in our heads and not where we sit, think about what we say before we say it. If your opinion is expected to be a popular one, then it is not an opinion, and like it or not we are all allowed.

Someone who apologizes because it’s the popular thing to do, in my opinion, loses his integrity, a rare thing today. If we would all say what we truly believe instead of what we think some people want us to say, I think we would all be much better off.

That’s my opinion and I’m sticking to it.
