Ingratitude! thou marble-hearted fiend...

Heartwarming.

It's good to say sorry.

Is it wrong that I find this story so, well, warming of the cockles? I have in the past felt a little cynical about the belated municipal apology that comes years or maybe hundreds of years later from a completely different generation of people with only a tangential connection with the original event(s). What is the value or validity of this gesture? In this case it seems that it was quite cathartic for all involved.
