More On The Incivility Wars
Brooke McEldowney, cartoonist extraordinaire and creator of one of my favorite strips (9 Chickweed Lane), contributes to the discussion:
I couldn't resize the strip sufficiently to be visible to any but the best vision, but here's a transcript:
A locutionary field guide to Earth (the hard little planet with the soft center).
Murder and incivility:antipodes on the spectrum of affronts to society, incivility being the most heinous.
On Earth, the crime of murder is universally celebrated, a fascinating wellspring of entertainment profits that corresponds in direct proportion to the ferocity of the murder. To date, there are very few, if any, television programs, novels, stories, plays, or films about incivility.
