Veazy III: A foul stench on civility

Tsk, task. Aspenite Mick Ireland’s vulgarity toward Hon. Pitkin County Sheriff Joe DiSalvo at the Aspen downtown Farmers Market was definitely more than a faux pas. It’s so far from decent protocol, even if he was scared of the Hon. DiSalvo during their tense conversation.  

Those who were in most proximity to the two adversaries should have admonished Mr. Ireland about his foul language. Shame on them!  

From reading “DiSalvo, Ireland exchange words at Aspen Farmers Market booth,” Aspen Daily News, Sept. 10, and “DiSalvo should have thicker skin,” Mark Freirich, Letter, Aspen Daily News, Sept. 12, civility will always top the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution no matter what barbarians say and do.

The breakdown of polite society standards and etiquette is a foul stench across our land and in our social intercourse.
