There isn't really anything substantive worth saying about this. The reason I'm writing is because the story seemed like a rare instance of everybody involved being nice and reasonable.
- Gov. Beshear was reasonable in thinking the name "Tupac Shakur" was fake.
- The actual person with that name was reasonably embarrassed to be called out like that.
- Beshear, upon realizing his mistake, called Mr. Shakur to apologize.
- Shakur graciously accepted the apology.
Really, I can't ask for much more from either of them. Mistakes happen, apologies are made, people are understanding. It was just nice. And sometimes I like focusing on nice.
