How could using the demeaning, belittling language help anything in our community? Does it lessen or mask the name-calling implied to refer to “governmental sphincter seizure”? Or was that just a poor attempt at being clever with words?
What kind of example was set regarding the way that we choose to disagree? Does it really help to publish a tirade such as this? Is this type of divisive and loaded language the example to be advocated for our city, our nation?
Right. We can’t legislate morality. Neither can we legislate civility and civil discourse. But the editorial surely makes me wish we could do the latter.
