oui! be the change!

While I’m not absolutely certain “rules” are the answer to the world’s tough problems, be those rules gun control, or mandatory mental illness screening of high school students (as I heard Dave Cullen, author of the book Columbine suggest on NPR’s live coverage yesterday), or this interesting one —  enforcing politeness — which predated the tragedy in CT.   I *do*, however, find the latter’s poll finding that “60 percent of French list bad manners as their #1 cause of stress” very humbling.  That and the words attributed to Mahatma Gandhi are getting me through today.

We must be the change we wish to see in the world
