How many ways can I say I’m sorry?

The New York Times has strung together lines from notable apology speeches into one big, remorseful Frankenpentance.

Tragically missing, though, is anything from Rob Ford’s rambling, defensive apology from last November. Where’s “I know I have let you down and I can’t do anything else but apologize and apologize”? Or “I was elected to do a job and that’s exactly what I’m going to continue doing” – which would have fit perfectly right after Nixon’s “I don’t believe that I ought to quit, because I am not a quitter”?

I’d say the Times owes us an apology.
