This is such dreck!

The old adage In vino veritas, is simply not true any more than it's true that what people say when they're anaesthetized is the truth. We all have weird stuff floating around in our minds and when one is as blotto as Gibson was reported to be ... well, he could as easily have started putting the moves on the police officer.

But apologies have come to be like affirmative action in that there is never a time when they are allowed to stop, when forgiveness is granted and we all move on. The expectation seems to be that anyone who is in any way conservative must at least forever apologize for anything. Resignation is also required if the miscreant hold office.

But Democrats, liberals, and blacks (okay, maybe not Andrew Young) can say anything whatsoever, confess to a slip, and then it's over with.

If I ever slip publicly, I am going to apologize, explain how it happened and how it violates my own values and what I will do to avoid doing it again. Then if there are any further calls, I'll tell the apology vampires to get a life. I'm tired of this nonsense.

Of course. Gibson did not write the story. God did that.

I like a lot of his movies, has nothing to do with him personally.
