It's sort of old news now, but I am pretty sure we are all appalled by the actions of many high-profile folks recently: Screaming liar at the president, cussing out tennis refs on major TV, and smacking other folks' kids! We often say, "What is the world coming to," but really...this does seem to beyond the "Are we less civil?" issue and more just outright...well, I'm not sure what: selfishness? lack of self control? Uh, no intention to have self control? So my only comment is that I sure want to do a book on responsible behavior, manners, etiquette, etc. for kids. But to kids' credit...maybe I should be writing the book for adults?
