On the word “sorry”

Once again I want to share an article from the NYTimes. I just read this about how the English use the word “sorry” and thought it was worth including. It’s a laugh to think about this in the context of DM and all the serious remarks I’ve made about Martin saying he’s sorry. Also, it reminds me of the book “Eats Shoots and Leaves” by Lynne Truss about punctuation and grammar and the book “On Bullshit” by Harry G. Frankfurt about how we have no clear understanding of what bullshit is, why there is so much of it, or what functions it serves.

    Interesting article. We, in Canada are often mocked because we say we are sorry for everything! It is really quite true. Canadians are very polite by nature and are very prone to say they are sorry for anything – even if they are not at fault! Funny!
