The recent shootings in Arizona give even more justification to discuss the dangers arising, in part, from reckless public speech. This mainly modern and ubiquitous practice (because of easy availability of electronic tools) needs to be addressed by senior officials and media alike. Why is it that when personal or inflammatory comments are made that senior officials do not publicly denounce such remarks? That's when leaders rise from political hacks to statesmen and stateswomen. When people choose public service, safety issues will always be an issue. Human beings being what they are, imperfect and some very ill, security and first responders must be part of safety plans. If we want good people to choose public service, reckless public speech must be denounced by anyone in authority, especially politicians, media CEOs, entertainment people, the church and anyone else who has a bully pulpit. Not to do so will continue to coarsen our society and tragedies can and will continue. — Jo Stewart, Chicago Published by
