Steve,

Yes, I did see that article. I've got to say, this is really a no-brainer for me. Holding another human being in bondage is wrong, it's that simple. It's not a matter of whether it was "considered" right or wrong when it happened. If we realize NOW that it was wrong, then an apology is the very least we can do. It's not a north and South thing - it's a national thing. And frankly I don't care if the "master" was white, black, Asian, or purple. The question is whether we, as a people, have the ability to admit that our fore-fathers were wrong. I have no problem with that, but it seems many still do....
