#259 / How (Not) To Talk To Each Other
My blog post, yesterday, was really about how we need to find a better way to talk to each other. One way not to be successful in a conversation is to begin that conversation with an assumption that what we think is "obvious" is obvious to everyone else.
In the same batch of newspapers I read on Sunday, August 26th, I found this cartoon by Stephan Pastis. His Pearls Before Swine cartoons are always a treat, and this one definitely gets at our current political dysfunction, providing a humorous look at our inability to find a good way to talk to each other. We need to respect other persons' views and take them seriously. We can't just dismiss them because we know they are so clearly wrong.
