I jumped to conclusions on Saturday with my "American Taliban" post. Obama said we should talk to each other in a way that heals, not wounds. I was not using "healing words" in many comments on Saturday. Obama is right. The discourse is polarized. There are good people everywhere, even in the Tea Party, I'm sure. Sometimes it's hard not to become emotional and reactionary, especially when a 9-year old (born on 9/11, no less) is killed, but civility and politeness are always important. Thanks for reminding me, Mr. President.
