Now that we have a two-party Con­gress, they will have to co­op­er­ate or shut down the gov­ern­ment so it was a good elec­tion re­sult. And now I have a sug­ges­tion that might help to min­i­mize the po­lit­i­cal trash-talk­ing in this col­umn. My no­tion is that we ought to quit with the la­bels, i.e., Repub­li­can or Demo­crat, lib­eral or con­ser­va­tive, Nazi or so­cial­ist, and as an in­tel­li­gent al­ter­na­tive write only of spe­cific is­sues along with sup­port­ing fac­tual ev­i­dence. For ex­am­ple, aren’t the is­sues sur­round­ing ed­u­ca­tion, health care, na­tional debt, the en­vi­ron­ment, al­co­hol and other drug abuse more wor­thy of your con­cern than ex­chang­ing in child­ish name-call­ing?
