Comments re: Why do governments reinforce, reward bad behavior?

Civilized courtesy of Cumberland County driver takes Adair Countian, used to crude behavior at home, by surprise. He wonders why Columbia can't make a reasonable effort to remove this blemish from the fabric of our nature.

By Billy Joe Fudge

I was in Burkesville recently and in an attempt to cross the downtown traffic to the Old Courthouse I stopped to let a car pass as I would in Columbia. I almost lost my breath when the car came to a complete stop and the driver- who looked very offended that I had implied by my stopping that she was not a law abiding citizen - vigorously motioned for me to continue my pedestrian journey.

There is so much about us as a community and a people that is so very, very positive and good and I can't for the life of me figure why we won't take every reasonable effort to remove this blemish from the fabric of our nature. - Billy Joe Fudge-
