Civil Discourse: not just a fantasy

Dr. Jim Taylor writes about delightful conversations he's had with people from other persuasions - and about why things are so bad these days.

One nice point: mean-spiritedness "has the magical ability to transform anxiety and fear into righteous indignation and anger, both much more palatable emotions".

He also wants to make Sept 15th a national day of civil discourse.  Cool idea. Better: make it the 19th, and it could be discourse-like-a-civil-pirate day.
