Steve Scalise, Nancy Pelosi, and a Return to Civility
Sometimes terrible tragedies can bring us together, and I’m hopeful that somehow a lasting good will come out of the ballfield shooting in Alexandria, Va. Maybe even a rebirth of civility, which has virtually disappeared from politics, and perhaps ...
