Table manners MIA

With the advent of constant cell phone use and texting it seems that nice table manners have gone by the wayside. We are all now so anxious to have our say, talking with one's mouth full now appears to be acceptable.

I see by the Sept. 17 political cartoon in the Opinion section, cartoonist John Darkow works the same way the Democratic Party does. When you cannot dispute the argument, use the race card. It's nothing less than an insult to all Americans. Disgusting.
