Choose Civility

That's the new bumper sticker slogan appearing on cars around town, part of a countywide initiative led by the Howard County library. Several other bloggers in town turned us on to this, and today seemed as good a day as any to mention it after a 15-year-old was arrested for bringing a semi-automatic into Hammond High School. According to the Sun, the student allegedly took the gun from a locked gun safe at home and tucked it, unloaded, into his waistband. He also apparently had nine or 10 rounds of ammunition. Students alerted a teacher, and administrators relayed the information to the police officer on duty at the school.

The "Choose Civility" car magnets are free. Jesse at Hometown Columbia said she picked up hers at the East Columbia branch.

I was shopping today down in the H-Mart Korean grocery store area (Route 40 and Rolling Road) and saw a "Choose Civility" bumper sticker on someone's car. I got a kick out of it and felt like I was in some new sort of club. :)

The magnet, imo, really stands out in its simplicity and elegance.
