Pick the good side

A friend told me a sweet anecdote about his grandparents. His grandfather preferred one political party, and his grandmother the other. One voting day, his grandmother had just returned from the polls, announcing that she’d cast her ballot. “What’d you do that for?” his grandfather complained, “You just canceled out my vote!!”

When it comes to thinking about government, lighthearted anecdotes may help us laugh and relax a little bit about differences of opinion. But progress breaks down when political dialogue turns vicious.
