Big news in the UK today was Russell Brand apologising to actor Andrew Sachs ("Manuel" in Fawlty Towers) and resigning his job as BBC presenter. Sky news had Russell giving a heartfelt honest apology and resignation from BBC and it was really refreshing to see.
In my opinion, I have never really liked Russell Brand much at all and yet today, I find I suddenly respect him. Why? Because in a world where everyone is afraid of admitting they were wrong, Russell Brand totally owns up to his pathetic behavior, admits he "crossed the line" in a juvenille way, gives the best apology I have ever heard on TV, and does so while respecting and honouring all parties involved.
