When you have a child who continually lies about almost any and every thing, you don't let him get away with it. You call him on it every time. Glad we have you and a few others who continue to do the right thing. It will pay off in the long run. Better days are coming, sooner rather than later.

P.M.: The main point is valid, but I'm a little surprised at your despair. As a political historian you're infinitely more aware than I of the nearly and sometimes actually lethal squabbling in US politics past. The Lincoln and Burr duels are probably most well known. There have been loads of other bad behavior. I don't look at BuzzFlash anymore because the only reason I did was to read your column, but I still check your old haunt HNN. Maybe you'd feel better if you did too.

Actually, it was an absurd oversight on my part not to mention the Civil War. It seems to have popped up again in less violent form with Republicans as neo-Confederates.
