'Choose Civility' Symposium to Focus on Decline

National commentators will use elections as context for discussion at Howard County Library.

The Howard County Library System is gearing up for another Choose Civility symposium on Oct. 11, and panelists will be paying particular attention to campaign rhetoric leading up to the presidential election in November.

"With the election campaign in full swing, panelists will address the declining civility in America in the recent years," according to a statement from the Howard County System.

Korva Coleman, a journalist for National Public Radio, will again be moderating the symposium in Ellicott City.

The panel will feature David Frum, who is an author, Newsweek contributing editor and CNN contributor; Andrew Green, The Baltimore Sun editorial editor; and Henry Alford, author of Would It Kill You to Stop Doing That?: A Modern Guide to Manners.

Join the discussion at the Miller Branch Library in Ellicott City from 6:15 to 9:30 p.m. on Oct. 11.

Have you ever seen the bumper sticker.... Choose insanity Live in Howard County. http://chooseinsanity.com/ We need more of these stickers! I think there great! Howard County has been out of control with development for over 10 years.. Salaries are too ridiculous! This is just a marketing campaign for Howard County. It maybe true for short timers in Howard County, but not for us who suffer the growth pains of Howard County!!
