How apologies are done.

Ryan Sager, a writer for the New York Sun, was lambasted for a misleading quote of Sen. Sam Brownback on the campaign stump. Called on it, Sager agreed, and issued a full apology and correction of the original piece.

That's how it's supposed to be done--no qualifiers, no "sorry you were offended but I'm not admitting I'm wrong"--just a complete mea culpa followed up by efforts to repair the damage.

This is admirable, and seen all too infrequently. Something I can file away for the inevitable future reference.
