Has your childhood bully ever apologized to you?

I was an angry kid at one point in my life. My best friend had moved away and I was unpopular. I became a bit of a bully. There are three people in particular that I treated particularly bad. I want to apologize to them, but does it just serve to only make myself feel better? Has anyone here been bullied and received an apology later in life? And how did it make you feel? I was also bullied. My bully tried to add me as a friend on Facebook multiple times, and I always declined it. I wonder sometimes if maybe he was trying to apologize.

Mortons

When I was in elementary school, we called front-wedgies (where you pull up someone's underwear in the front, rather than in the back) 'mortons'... am I the only one to have done this, or is it something common? also, if anyone actually did call it a 'morton,' where does the name come from?
