Deroy Murdock writes of something that is quickly becoming a relic of a bygone age it seems: manners.

He writes:

The ongoing collapse of courtesy is no surprise in a nation with so many people who are as self-absorbed as black holes. Consider this T-shirt I've spotted: "It's all about me deal with it."
Murdock then goes on to list twelve simple rules for good manners. To which I would add one right off the top of my head: shutting your cell phone off during church services. I don't know how many times I've heard a cell phones intrusive ringing during Mass. Honestly, unless it's God calling, I don't need to take a call for that hour. Besides, I figure He knows how to reach me in the interim.
