When I was a young lawyer starting my career, one of my first cases involved representing a woman in a contested divorce. After the judge made a favorable ruling on behalf of my client, the surprised opposing counsel and his client angrily departed the courtroom.

I noticed counsel had left a few documents and a newspaper behind. I picked them up in hopes of returning them to him.

My initial thought was yah - every generation probably thinks people are getting more and more uncivil, but then I thought about Trump - by far the most uncivil president we elected and how he is still a presidential contender and a role model to those who aspire to be ugly Americans.


I'd rather be a little uncivil and get things done than an air headed Ding-a-ling like your boy Mumbley Joe!
