Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

I don't care about Condoleezza Rice's fitness regime.  I never remember hearing about Colin Powell's fitness regime, nor that of Madeleine Albright, Warren M. Christopher or, for that matter, that of any previous U.S. Secretary of State back to Thomas Jefferson.  I do care about the fitness of the United States in the global economy and in global politics, and would be happy to read about those things, but personal weight training programs are just that, personal.  Couldn't we please obsess about something else today?  Like getting out of Iraq or fighting the global war on terror or something?  Please?
