The Importance of Civility

We linked yesterday to a blog in this post.  Well, it looks like he’s changed his tune.  This is a good example of what civil dialog can bring, when we are armed with facts and treat our opponents as reasonable people.   Real good work on the part of my readers.

It’s rare that someone actually is willing to admit defeat, and I admire someone who can admit that maybe they didn’t know as much as they thought they did.  Most of the time, we may not change minds.  But it’s important to have the dialog.  This is how you keep a republic healthy, and advance the political debate.

I wish I could take credit for most of the dude’s traffic, but SayUncle and Jeff Soyer had a lot to do with it too :)
