Subject: Political Adulthood

This morning, The New York Times published a profile of
the New York City Council Speaker painting her as a person
of uncontrolled temper, vituperation and vengeance.

This does not make her unique.

Shouting, threatening, and laying waste to one's
opponents are nothing new in politics.

But in the current climate, where the country is paralyzed
by an excess of ideology and ego, "I am who I am" is not
an excuse.

It is not too much to ask that our politicians act like

Civil grown-ups, that is.

PS: If you also are tired of public and private political
boorishness, feel free to share this with your own lists.

PPS: If you got two copies of this, we apologize.
Really, we do.
