Talk seems to have taken a nasty turn these days, in political speech, on talk radio, on the Internet -- where anonymity emboldens the angry -- and on cable TV. Lots of talk. Little listening. Why does one person have to be a left-wing pinko and the other a right-wing zealot? Can't we disagree without being disagreeable? On the next sound of ideas, a discussion about civility in our culture. All viewpoints accepted, Wednesday at 9 on 90.3.
