Hart: Learned From Hard Knocks

“It's no secret that I've had a lot of media attention lately because of some of the circumstances involving my life. It's very complicated. … I'm sure most of you have at least some knowledge of what those are. I want to say that if I could go back 15 years and make some different choices, I would absolutely do that. I think I've learned through the school of hard knocks that I picked a pretty hard path to hoe." Hart said that lately, in his “political activism … a few things snowballed. And since then I've been trying to wrap that up. I've even learned in the last few years that if I'd made a few less aggressive choices, and taken maybe a more simpler path … I think I would have … a lot of my more present circumstances more wrapped up than I have right now”/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise. More here.

Question: I'm not a fan of Phil Hart and doubt that I'll ever be. But I'm satisfied with Hart's apology. Are you?
