Thank you to Laurie Craig for her well-written comments in Sunday's My Turn. Although I've not spoken with her on the subject of the recent tone of comments in the Empire regarding a possible capital move, I appreciate her eloquent writing and agree with her stated opinions. As the world was tragically reminded recently, it is much easier and quicker to tear down or destroy something than to build it. Words, as well as deeds, delivered in haste to make a point, whether the idea be right or wrong, can cause damage far beyond the original intent. If we all gave as much effort to produce something positive rather than negative, the world would be a better place and our time in it better spent.
