there is a line in a popular song that is being played frequently (sorry, I do not know either the name of the artist, or the name of the song) but basically the line reads:

I have to put Edwads into that category. If you make a "mistake" you do not continue to repeat the mistake over several months. Nor do you pay off the mistake to make it go away.
