The Hardest Word

Terrance Heath

It’s sad. So sad.

It’s a sad, sad situation.

And it’s getting more and more absurd…

Oh, it seems to me,

that ‘sorry’ seems to be the hardest word.

Elton John, “Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word”

Absurd. That seems like an appropriate word as we watch the “W” era wind down, as the perenially blameless commander in chief dons his usual “What, me worry?” grin while slathering himself with teflon. Because being George W. Bush has always meant never having to say you’re sorry.

Until now. And, still, not quite.
