Also, what beef do you have with someone apologizing?
If you're going to go off on me for looking "important," a more logical post might be the one where I claim that I nearly won the court case for Terri Schiavo -- all by myself. ('Almost' I was on the 'save terri' side which lost.)
Here, let me redo it - just for you
The following letter was written by Gordon Wayne Watts of Lakeland, Florida, who received a Bachelorâ€™s degree from The Florida State University with a double major in Biological and Chemical Sciences with honors and was the valedictorian from United Electronics Institute. Watts, a non-lawyer, is best known for his lawsuit on behalf of Terri Schiavo, which lost 4-3 in the Florida Supreme Court, arguably doing better than even then Governor Jeb Bushâ€™s similar suit (lost: 7-0) or Terri Schiavoâ€™s own familyâ€™s federal case (lost: 2-1). Mr. Watts, who ran unsuccessfully for Dist. 64 Fla. House of Representatives, is a part-time political activist while he searches for a full-time job in his field.

"First, they [Nazis] came for the Jews. I was silent. I was not a Jew. Then they came for the Communists. I was silent. I was not a Communist. Then they came for the trade unionists. I was silent. I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for me. There was no one left to speak for me." (Martin NiemÃ¶ller, given credit for a quotation in The Harper Religious and Inspirational Quotation Companion, ed. Margaret Pepper (New York: Harper &Row, 1989), 429 -as cited on page 44, note 17, of Religious Cleansing in the American Republic, by Keith A. Fornier, Copyright 1993, by Liberty, Life, and Family Publications.
Some versions have Mr. NiemÃ¶ller saying: "Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn't speak up, because I was a Protestant"; other versions have him saying that they came for Socialists, Industrialists, schools, the press, and/or the Church; however, it's certain he DID say SOMETHING like this. Actually, they may not have come for the Jews first, as it's more likely they came for the prisoners, mentally handicapped, & other so-called "inferiors" first -as historians tell us -so they could get "practiced up"; however, they did come for them -due to the silence of their neighbors -and due in part to their own silence. So: "Speak up now or forever hold your peace!"-GWW
