     Perhaps I’m a prude, or straight laced, or even a throw back to a bygone era. Or I am under a delusion or what I hear and see is distorted by smudged glasses and labored hearing.
     What is out—civility. It must be an archaic word. Some people rue the day it disappeared while others think it’s overrated. Then there’s verbiage laced with pugnacious words that are aimed at destruction. And recently a stream of words that were indicative of a small mind, a lack of adequate vocabulary, and a vindictiveness and crassness rarely seen in the public sphere. And please don’t blame it on being from New York. 
     Then there’s the inability to listen, to disagree without rancor, to find common ground. And this new universe doesn’t appear to be ending soon.
