"This was a very serious sin in my past for which I am, of course, completely responsible. Several years ago, I asked for and received forgiveness from God and my wife in confession and marriage counseling.

But I certainly offer my deep and sincere apologies to all I have disappointed and let down in any way."david vitter

Sincere apologies are for those that make them, not for those to whom they are made.Greg leMond
I make no apologies for being a huge fan of radio songs.Keith urban
Our apologies, good friends, for the fracture of good order, the burning of paper instead of children, the angering of the orderlies in the front parlor of the charnel house.
