Now that the heat over Congressman Joe Wilson’s “you lie” outburst has cooled and summer’s angry town hall meetings on health care are behind us, ready for a thoughtful conversation about civility? Or, more precisely, the growing lack of civility – not just in the political arena but in sports, on the internet and across the cultural landscape. More people seem to be ready to "unload" at the drop of a hat? Ever catch yourself being uncivil? Friday morning at 9, join Regina Brett and guests as they discuss what's fueling incivility and what can be done about it.

Guests

John Schneider, Columnist, Lansing State Journal
John Green, Director, Ray Bliss Institute of Applied Politics at University of Akron
Dan Buccino, Assistant Professor in Dept. of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine
Catherine, Holloway, Etiquette Consulting Services
