As predicted, Marion Barry apologized today for his recent Asian-related comments. But he managed to restart his Cycle of Redemption even sooner than anticipated when, in the course of tendering his public apology, he said the following: “The Irish caught hell, the Jews caught hell, the Polacks caught hell.” Poles, of course, do not care to be called Polacks.
