Are We There Yet?

Manners...

In today's mailbag is a note from a woman who puts on etiquette classes for children.
She writes that, "my focus for now is children and youth. I chose this profession out of concern for the decline of respect, honor and
kindness in our nations youth."
Ouch.

My personal experience is that many kids and younger folks are clueless when faced with a properly set table - even if it's just at my house on a Sunday.

But so are many of the professional adults I encounter when I'm out and about.

Yes, I'm European, I'm 40 and I was raised in a different way - but what do you say?
How important are manners today?
