Tolerance goes with diversity of viewpoints

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’ve become pretty intolerant of folks who yammer endlessly about tolerance. More times than not it seems those who speak the loudest are unable to countenance the slightest objection to their appeals and ultimatums. The most vocal proponents of tolerance — activists, entertainers, politicians and much of the news media — view even passive dissent as a heresy that must be crushed.

Thank people for service in U.S. military

Military service is still difficult, lonely and hard on families. When you next see a man or woman in uniform, march right up and say, “Thank you for your service!” If you really want to make their day, consider offering to pick up their lunch or dinner tab.
