I’m not the only one troubled by the Walsh crusade.

“In that sense, Mr. Walsh is a cautionary tale. We live in a time of acute bitterness and acrimony, where people’s first (and second and third) impulse is to brutalize, insult, embarrass and demean those who hold different views. The purpose of language, as they see it, isn’t to clarify or enlighten or reason together. It is to inflict the maximum pain possible on other human beings.”

At some point we must embrace forgiveness as an admirable trait in our culture. We need not be like Plato, casting aside the Athenian who step out of line.
