The Civility Pledge

In 2010 Mark Demoss wrote a post titled "Why this fear of a civility pledge?" (read it here). Here is the Civility Pledge:

    •   I will be civil in my public discourse and behavior.

    •   I will be respectful of others whether or not I agree with them.

    •   I will stand against incivility when I see it.

I am taking the pledge. Won't you take the pledge with me?

PS: It is interesting to note that The Civility Project website (mentioned in DeMoss' post) is no longer up and running. Perhaps that is representative of how folks have given up on civility. Even so, I wish our candidates would take it.
