David Hegg: Listen up people

Some of the most intelligent and attractive people I know spend most of their conversational time listening. They take in what is being said by others, while being engaged in what has been called "active listening." That means they are actually hearing what is being said, analyzing its cogency, forming correct conclusions, and – where needed – responding with a modicum of insight. Simply said, those who listen well more often than not think before speaking, and offer their world more benefit than blather.

Kevin Buck: The buck stopped there

For many years I have had the pleasure of a robust political give and take with a couple of knowledgeable, intelligent and reasoned conservatives. Very conservative conservatives. We will never convince each other of the efficacy of our respective positions on the political spectrum, but the arguments and rebuttals are engaging and I find them useful in understanding the other side of the issues. That we have been able to do this for years without resorting to ad hominin personal attacks is especially encouraging.
