The Morning After

by Bob Blackburn | March-April 2001

THE EXIT POLLS ("Between the Lines," January-February 2001) taken on the morning
after the election were most revealing.

THE EXIT POLLS ("Between the Lines," January-February 2001) taken on the morning after the election were most revealing. I find it sobering that when asked "which issues mattered most," very few Americans mentioned the environment. How long will it take our nation to realize that a healthy environment is inextricably linked with a healthy economy, healthcare, and world affairs?

Sojourners Comment Community Covenant

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Sojourners online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree, even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)

I understand that comments reported as abusive are reviewed by Sojourners staff and are subject to removal. Repeat offenders will be blocked from making further comments. (Proverbs 18:7)
