Why Bother with Civility? Because It Works!

I have learned that how we say what we say determines whether or not we are heard. I can’t tell you how many times someone has kicked off a “conversation” by mocking, criticizing or demeaning me. When it happens, that little voice inside my head is screaming what I should say back so loud I cannot hear anything else. I certainly can’t hear what it is they actually want me to know. Sound familiar? The irony is that NOT calling […]

Crazy Eddie spotlights the “wins” for diversity at 2019 Academy Awards

I told my readers to “stay tuned at the end of ‘First Man’ and ‘The Favourite’ surprise as Oscar winners as films about government and politics, a recycled comment.

It’s About Dignity, Stupid!

First, let me apologize. I don’t really think you are stupid. I was competing for your attention with an oxymoron. And also to demonstrate how easy it is to get attention by using denigrating language. Something titled “Dignity Is the Answer” would not interest as many people. Yet I know the world would be improved if dignity were our basis for living. When dignity is present, all things are possible. Dignity is the right of a person to be valued […]
