Lance Haworth: Depressing discourse

The diatribes against North Carolina teachers included in the Nov. 17 Other Opinion community conversations made for depressing reading, but the smug and bullying tone adopted by some of them was worse.

To quote one participant, “suck it up, wipe your nose and for the sake of the children you are teaching (your customers) stop the whining!” Good grief. If this is what passes for community conversation and civil discourse in today’s society, we’re all in trouble.
