MY TURN: Lightbulb comes on

| May 13, 2020 1:00 AM

I read through Dave Botting’s “My Turn” column (Civility suffers in political pandemic) and couldn’t figure out whom he was talking about. He didn’t single out anyone or any group to support his point of view.

So, I read it again trying to see what I had missed and low and behold, there it was. The quote attributed to Socrates. “When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the losers.” He was talking about the Democratic Party!
