Note from Bil: I bumped this post from Buck's usual spot in the middle column because it deserves more attention than his usual entertainment show. It's not often that comedian Buck gets serious, but his reply to a viewer's apology is worth a main column posting. We should all be so gracious.

Thank you for writing to me. I forgive you.

Love, Michael

Thank you for your gracious acceptance of his apology. It is so much harder to apologize than to slam someone in the first place. And often opinions have to do with a lot of internal stuff anyway.
Great job!

Very good. Your response was wonderful. And his email was a big step of self acceptance. And if he sees this I hope that he realizes that we are behind him all the way.

SWEET. (the original definition)
