NC sheriff apologizes for immigrant comments (http://www2.journalnow.com/content/2008/sep/08/080830/nc-sheriff-apologizes-immigrant-comments/ - broken link)

Quote:
A North Carolina sheriff has apologized for calling illegal immigrants "trashy" and saying the growing Hispanic population in his county was "breeding like rabbits".
Johnston County Sheriff Steve Bizzell issued the apology after the News & Observer of Raleigh printed comments in a Sunday article, the newspaper said Monday. Bizzell also told the newspaper, "Everywhere you look it's like little Mexico around here."
Apology accepted.

Apology accepted.
I'm afraid I am also perplexed. Generally, the recipient of the insult accepts the apology. If I insult you, I certainly wouldn't expect sassyone to accept the apology. On second thought, oh never mind...........
