... Glenn Reynolds gave vent (justifiably) to some pique yesterday. People are always going on about a decline in morality. I actually think the decline in manners is more worrisome, because a lot of moral behavior is grounded in good manners. There are some things a gentleman or lady simply won't consider doing, such as taking a bribe, or plagiarizing someone else's work - you get the idea. It also annoys me that so much of the snippiness is done electronically by people I doubt would have the nerve to speak that way to someone in person.
