    One of the Best Buy stores in Houston offered Hurricane Harvey victims bottled water ... for a price, a very high one and now the company's apologizing. The store was caught selling 12-packs of Smartwater for $29.98 and 24-packs of Dasani for a whopping $42.96. A photo of the display went viral this week, amid allegations of price gouging in the wake of the Harvey. Best Buy now admits, "This was a big mistake on the part of a few employees at one store on Friday. As a company we are focused on helping, not hurting affected people. We’re sorry...

    Missouri State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal must have found out the hard way that the Secret Service don't play and she went from she won't apologize to a very public apology in just a few short days... sort of. She told us we all make mistakes. Not like hers, but we do. She also told us that we're not to judge her. So much for humility and contrition.

    Mitt Romney called on President Donald Trump Friday to apologize for his comments about Charlottesville, Virginia, saying the President’s remarks this week “caused racists to rejoice.” “The potential consequences are severe in the extreme,” Romney wrote in a Facebook post. “Accordingly, the president must take remedial action in the extreme. He should address the American people, acknowledge that he was wrong, apologize.” He said that Trump’s remarks — in which he blamed “both sides” for inciting violence, an equivocation between neo-Nazis and those protesting them — had a hurtful impact on the nation. “Whether he intended to or not, what...

    “I want to extend my sincere apologies to those in our Scouting family who were offended by the political rhetoric that was inserted into the jamboree. That was never our intent,” Michael Surbaugh, whose title is chief Scout executive, wrote in a message posted online. That was a break from the Boy Scouts’ earlier statements about Trump’s speech, issued the day afterward. Those merely noted that the Scouts were “respectful of the wide variety of viewpoints in this country” but made no mention of what Trump actually said. On Thursday, Surbaugh wrote, “We sincerely regret that politics were inserted into the...

    After a period in America when we were faced with incident after incident of airline passengers becoming cause célčbre because of questionable decisions by airline personnel, you would think the airlines would adjust how they treat the people who pay the freight. Instead Delta Airlines decided to pick a fight with one the most well-known social/political commentators in the country. That outcome could not end well. Ann Coulter booked a flight from New York LaGuardia to West Palm Beach, Florida, on Saturday, July 15th. Coulter had booked a seat in what Delta refers to as their Comfort+ seating. As a...
