Good Article On Civility In USA Today

Front page on the print edition, believe it or not. The story deals with blatant rudeness by Joe Wilson, Serena Williams and Kanye West.

With West it's obviously a matter of being famous beyond his IQ level. With Wilson and Williams it's a bit tougher, because neither is noted for such behavior.

Our first president, George Washington, felt that civility was so important that he wrote out 110 examples of civil behavior to be followed. You can find them here. Some are obviously dated, and not as applicable to 21st century life as to 18th century life, but many are still relevant even today.
