Searching for Civility
The shootings in Tucson have dominated the news and the thoughts of nearly everyone over the past week.
And despite no known motive for the killings - although it's likely it was not political - the horrifying incident has touched off discourse about civility in public exchange.
There recently has been movement in Colorado and nationally to tone down the rhetoric, with the Denver Chamber of Commerce releasing an open letter to Colorado's elected leaders, calling for civility. While released two days after the Arizona shootings, thetiming of the letter was coincidence.
And on a national level, Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (R) will introduce legislation zeroing in on the high-capacity ammunition clips the gunman allegedly used in the shooting,.
This week on “Colorado State of Mind,” Cynthia Hessin’s guests are Kelly Brough, president and CEO of the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce; Teresa Coons, mayor of Grand Junction; Andrew Romanoff, retired Colorado speaker of the house (D); and Sen. Shawn Mitchell (R).
What will it take to ease the polarization?
