EDITORIAL

Reviving civility

People dress and speak more casually in public places these days, and with the new informality comes a decrease in civility. Incessant texting and willingness to be interrupted anywhere and everywhere by electronic devices pose additional challenges to decorum and focus.

But the bottom line really hasn’t changed: Treat others as you would like them to treat you — i.e., with respect (even if you have to fake it).

Young people frequently conflate rudeness with honesty. We were watching TV in 1968 when Columbia students broke into the studio, grabbed a microphone and proclaimed the glorious right to curse on the air. Read more >

Two who will be missed

Gobble, gobble

In answer to the Inquirer’s query recently on why the turkey was crossing the road, Audrey Topping writes that she was heading for dinner at “Chez Toppings, her favorite café at 5 Heathcote Road. Her name is Agnes and she loves grapes and birdseed. She has been dining here since the big storm two years ago, when she got separated from her flock. She also hangs out at the Saxon Woods golf course. She is beautiful and comes when called. She gobbles to let us know when she is hungry.” Agnes — or one of her friends, was featured prominently in the police report this week, with numerous calls about a turkey holding up traffic.
