There's been a lot of fuss today about Joe Wilson's statement during Obama's speech last night. It seems as if ol' Joe has done something terrible and unprecedented. Nobody has ever been disrespectful to a president before. Lot's of folks are calling it the end of civility. I haven't heard anybody attack the validity of Wilson's statement, but that's beside the point.

Civility went out a long time ago. With it went telling the truth. And in today's society they aren't coming back...

...unless we bring back the code duello. Just my two bits. Like Heinlein said, an armed society is a polite society.
