Gentle Folk and Scholars

The superb group blog: Our Word and Welcome to It is fast becoming the standard bearer for civility in the blogosphere. (some days they are THE standard bearer). After every extreme action, I've noticed, and so have the Hadleybloggers of Our Word, that blog civility frequently takes a dive. It is especially dismaying to see this kind of vitriol on, supposedly, Catholic blogs. Check that: It is dismaying period. If you are going to take the trouble to post your words for public consumption, try to be polite.

If you aren't reading Our Word and Welcome to It, you should be.

I always think people are talking about me when they write these things. Cathy - will you email me if I get out of line? Have I been bad?

Maybe Angela Messenger had the right idea...

Oh, Terry, I would let you know if you had been out of line. I don't think you have, have you?

Terry,

You certainly don't fit the "Fool Killer" definition I have in mind!

Besides, as everyone knows, anybody who favorably mentions the name "Ronald Reagan" gets an indulgence of five years. ;-)

Cathy,

Thanks for the kind plug, and for your continuing support. We need to each pick five blogs and email them this piece.
