It's been 50 years in the making, but thousands of babies (now all adults) who were born with birth defects caused from the drug Thalidomide have finally gotten an apology. AP News reports the company as saying "We ask for forgiveness that for nearly 50 years we didn't find a way of reaching out to you from human being to human being," Harald Stock said. "We ask that you regard our long silence as a sign of the shock that your fate caused in us." more of the article
