Sojourner's quote of the week

Definitely timely:

So let us begin anew -- remembering on both sides that civility is not a sign of weakness, and sincerity is always subject to proof. Let us never negotiate out of fear, but let us never fear to negotiate. Let both sides explore what problems unite us instead of belaboring those problems which divide us.

- John F. Kennedy's inaugural address, January 20, 1961

And the lack of civility in his day wasn't anything compared to how it is now.
