Apologies seem to be obscene distortions

Is it me, or has anyone else noticed that when someone is exposed for wrongdoing, the responses all seem similar? No matter whether someone is overheard saying something racist, credibly accused of sexual harassment or caught in some incredibly egregious act, if the person decides that it's futile to dispute the charge, his (or her) apology looks like it came from the same mea culpa template.

Economic boom leaving workers behind

As we enter the new year, the economy is booming for big businesses and the stock market is at an all-time high. But many of us have friends, family or neighbors who lost their jobs in 2017 through no fault of their own. Take the 52 workers who lost their jobs at Invista on December 12, two weeks before Christmas, when their carpet factory shut down in Athens because their companion business relocated to Monterey, Mexico.
