All is right once again with the world

Shirley Sherrod Gets White House Apology

Stating that "a disservice was done," White House press secretary Robert Gibbs today apologized to former USDA employee Shirley Sherrod over her firing after a conservative news outlet posted an out-of-context video of comments she made two decades ago. "I think without a doubt is Sherrod is owed an apology," Gibbs told reporters. "I would do so certainly on behalf of this administration."
Sherrod, who watched the briefing, immediately responded on CNN that "it makes me feel better that the apology is finally happening." "I accept their apology," she said.

Well there you have it. Apology tendered, apology accepted. Now all that's left to do is for Sherrod to accept the deputy directorship of the agency and begin negotiations on the books rights and the movie. 

Meanwhile, the overall reality is once again ignored while the background noise and mantra once again rises to a crescendo and drowns out all but the desired and socially acceptable conversations.
