Civility Matters (Links below)

My Streaming Radio Show "Civility Matters" is coming soon.
(If you'd like to add your voice, email me here.)

I believe that the lack of Civility in our public conversation
is one of the most serious threats America faces today.

No other problem we have - not Terrorism, not Immigration, not Health Care -
no "Issue" is too great for my beloved country to manage, IF we can deal with it
as civilized adults.  If we can't do that, any one of them can be the rock that sinks us.

This is going to be a tough fight.  America is great at winning battles, but this challenge
is more like going on a diet.  We've indulged in the sweet taste of demonizing our political
opponents until we've wiped them out as a species - only Enemies remain.

Correcting that will be a feat more of endurance, and changing our identity as a country,
than wiping out a Hitler or defeating ISIS.

Here are some great places to start.  I will launch a campaign soon that brings this idea to
radio and TV audiences.  I'm writing an album, a book, and a Speaking platform
dedicated to the task.  Please add your voice to my efforts here.
