Ah! CAMom! That article makes my heart go pitter-pat! You do know the way to make an old argumentative writing teacher happy, don't you! smile

I so wish that Americans (in particular) would do a better job of understanding that it's possible--even desirable!--a) to disagree and not have the other side be evil, and b) to find points of commonality without having to water down one's position.

Polite disagreement is possible! It's even persuasive!

Thank you so much for posting that article! laugh
