    You were nicer then.
    If anything I think I am more polite now when I think of what the older generation went through to get us here. Lately I have seen my elders beeing rude for no reason. They taught us patience and respect and have forgotten it now?

    He was pretty active in politics, and certainly outspoken.

    I can't say that I have noticed a change, but maybe they are worried about the same things that everybody is.

    I couldn't delete the new thread. But anyway in the new corporate America and where I work, not respecting your co-worker will get you fired is #1 over safety. I am glad that the sargent sledge days are gone. Let us do our jobs, don't hurt us, don't mess with us and let us go home to our familys.

    Maybe its because you had to yell face to face then. To yell coast to coast took a week to get there.
