LETTERS: Five letters to forgiveness

Editor:

Re: Presumption of guilt brings out the worst, Aug. 26 column.

I laud columnist Nick Greenizan for calling himself and his friends out, following their confrontation with a grieving grandfather at a park.

He didn’t need to write this column. I am assuming he was under no obligation to do so, but his effort falls five letters desperately short of an acceptable apology.

At one point, Nick writes, “…there’s not too many ways to swing this to make us look good.”

Yes there was, Nick. There was one way: you guys could have said “sorry,” a simple five-letter long apology, and you could have repeated it in your column.
