Guilty of incivility

Dear Editor,

Civil discourse and reasoned political discussion are at a low ebb. Election campaigns resemble brawls, and the electronic world is filled with personal attacks and insults.

I am sorry to say I have been guilty of this incivility. A few weeks ago in the heat of anger I sent an email to your paper in which I labeled Mr. Reil, a regular columnist in the Times News, a "nut" and implied that he knew little about the Constitution or American history.

Upon reflection, I realize my statement was both intemperate and impolite. My sincere apologies to Mr. Reil, who is entitled to his opinions and beliefs, however misguided, without being personally insulted.
