    It's about time we start teaching our kids about civility. I hope this kind of thing takes off. From my local newspaper today:
    We all should adopt the Code of the West

    ("America is experiencing a general lack of civility, Owen told the Rotarians, and that is evident in calling the president a liar, cursing a tennis line judge, and stealing someone's thunder at an awards show.")

    Unfortunate that 'cowboy' in the UK has two meanings - the one you use, and "an unscrupulous or unqualified tradesman or firm"... As in "the government are (or is!) a bunch of cowboys!"...
