(For the Want of a) Polite Society

Sunday, October 23, 2011

This week, I merely offer this . . .

“A dying culture invariably exhibits personal rudeness. Bad manners. Lack of consideration for others in minor matters. A loss of politeness, of gentle manners, is more significant than is a riot . . .”

Robert A. Heinlein

One typically needs to look no further than our city streets and freeways for proof of this.
