London Columnist-Politician Offers Great Insight Into Carroll Controversy

A brilliantly reasoned essay from London columnist and politician Boris Johnson offers some great insight into our local controversy in Carroll, Iowa, involving some football players displaying what is widely regarded as an offensive gesture.

You can read the full story on the matter in the Carroll Daily Times Herald as well as my column there today.

Boris boils it down for us, too, though: It's time for adults to be adults again.

We won't restore civility to our streets until we realise that we all - collectively - need to recover our nerve and reassert our adult prerogatives.
