When did common courtesy go out of style?

I must have missed the memo.

When did terse, curt, and mean belligerence become the norm for communicating?

Why is the cult of personality in the 10 second news cycle more important than consistent integrity and ethics?

And why are those with with minimal intellect and a smidgeon of authority the worst offenders?

Why can't we be civil and courtesy to one another?

4. Goes back farther than that, I'm afraid.

When FDR was President, he had a Catholic priest, Father Coughlin on his butt and on the radio all the time.
Coughlin was openly anti-Semitic and pro-Nazi Germany.

When Lincoln was President, racist opponents claimed Lincoln was going to force white women to marry blacks.

When Washington was President, he screwed the government out of a lot of money with his "expenses."
