A long and bitter feud was one step closer to coming to an end today as singer Rod Stewart issued an apology to The Rev. Brendan Powell Smith for all past grievances. But experts are unsure how Smith will react to this most recent gesture. “I can never forgive that man for the harm he has brought upon me, my family, and the League of Women Voters,” Smith was quoted as saying as recently as last week. Stewart is 55 years old.
