Don't worry, we'll get around to each of them presently, eventually,
we've been pre-occupied with bombing ourselves up to four months ago for
the same reason. Note that we do make exceptions for those who apologize
for thinking they are victims of our politics. Heck, we've been
accepting apologies from Canada for a couple centuries already, and
Mexico got caught up on its subscription finally as well, so we
apologized for reporting them to collections. We get on so well with
Britain because they invented the art of apologizing for other people's
bad behavior.
