Davy Crockett of LCG recently posted the commentary “Sticks and stones“. It is a worthwhile read, as our society has become more “in your face” and downright rude over time. Long held values of civility seem to have been lost in the current age of the Internet and Fox News.
Yes, Fox News. I know some of you probably watch it. Even when I agree with what they are saying, though, I often find myself disagreeing with how they are saying it. “Interviews” are often nothing more than shouting matches. The latest incident with Shirley Sherrod only underscores the fact that they and their commentators often don’t check facts before shooting their mouths off.
We live in an age where people shout and do not listen. It’s emotional. It shows a heart problem. And it is getting worse.
