Whatever happened to the Golden Rule?

    Within the space of two days I've heard of two events that show how our elected local officials seem to think they can get away with immature, bad behavior!
    1.  Our own Crawford County, District 8, U.S. Representative Jason Smith yelling out in Congress, "Go back to Puerto Rico!"


    2. Our own Crawford County Clerk John Martin calling out a fellow county elected official in public by interjecting petty comments! "If I don't hear the word ‘please’ out of that woman's face at least once, she's on her own." (As reported in the Steelville Star, 1/17/19.)
    We need to handle ourselves with integrity and compassion, toward all human beings, all the time! Why do these folks seem to think acting like this is OK? Whatever happened to the Golden Rule?
Sincerely,
Ellen Bowles
Steelville
