I will not use this blog for political purposes. Period. What follows is not political.
I got involved in something this morning. Someone asked me to do something for a candidate. They began with a nasty, longwinded riff on how awful some candidate was. On and on it went.
Until I hung up.
Emotions are running high in this election. But that is no cause for incivility. Ever. I was tempted to swear like a sailor at this guy—but it would have defeated my purpose.
Tempers flare in elections—and in business everyday. I don’t object to sounding off in the privacy of a pub with two friends. I do object to such intemperate sounding off in more or less public discourse.
(Plus: It doesn’t work and makes you the idiot.)
