For John, BLUF: Being polite doesn't cost anything and shows one has self-control.
Over at the Comic Curmudgeon the below is the "Comment of the Week":
"I like that fact that, even in the moments before she's getting stabbed with a frog-poison tipped arrow, the narrator in Curtis refers to the evil witch as Ms. Yahna. I guess it's in the same style the Wall Street Journal refers to Mr. Hussein and Ms. Bathory. Respect: it's not an official principle of Kwanzaa, but it's nice to see it anyway." --VoshkodCurtis, while it can be found in newspapers in Eastern Massachusetts, is not featured in The [Lowell] Sun.
