PERSPECTIVE on our national state of intolerance

"No one forgives anyone for anything anymore.  People get angry just for disagreeing with them.  But remember the old AA phrase: if you can't forgive a person, it's like letting them live in your head rent-free."

Alan Simpson
Republican Senator
from Wyoming, 1979-1997

(From an interview in the April 12, 2010 issue of Newsweek.  We like what this guy has to say and will feature additional excerpts from the interview in the days ahead.  We especially like the fact that he is a Republican with a large perspective.  If you haven't noticed, this blog is on a tolerance kick.)
