All of our Public and Political Dialogue should be modeled on Christmas messages

Did you read or watch the Christmas messages? You know, the ones from all the people in charge. Since one of my children woke me up before dawn on Christmas Day because, of course, presents are involved, and I couldn’t get back to sleep, I read some of the Christmas messages.
