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.)
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
