The motion by Kevin Rudd, Prime Minister, in the Parliament on 13 
February 2008 contained the word "Sorry" three times.  It contains 
344 words, using 173 different words. I created a concordance index 
of the words in the apology. Web workers will be more familiar with 
this as a "tag cloud": <http://www.tomw.net.au/papers/apology.shtml>.

It might be interesting to compare this with the Apology to the 
Aboriginal People by John Howard, to see how similar they are
