Blair will battle ‘old pal’ tonight

Forgiveness not divine

Despite my first reaction to lay all the blame her way, when she finally spoke to me again, I apologized. Her apology to me came much later in the form of a very emotional blog entry.
In the erring portion of the sentence, the responsibility lies with the person who did the erring. It is he or she who must swallow some pride, muster some courage and say “I’m sorry.” Anybody who has had to do that knows how difficult it can be.
