“Sorry” is not enough in the days of the tabloids. There’s no way out; they will hound and pursue and compound and imply and demand and decry, treating confession as a spur to further vitriol, apology as a request for lynching and remorse as a spectacle for the baying crowd. Only the wanton and hard-hearted can survive; there’s no path out for those truly human. The threat to the compassionate is immense.
