I have been trying to understand what I dislike about modern America, and perhaps understand better what I crave: decency.

Decent people are not perfect, are not always right, are not always even very smart. But they are not filled with… indecency. It is not a religious issue (although some religion does seem to help to promote decency), it is not a racial issue, it is not a gender issue, or a sexual orientation issue. It is not a political issue.



Alexander Hay is a US lawyer now living in Tbilisi, Republic of Georgia. Some have accused him of being a curmudgeon, but what do they know???? Noisy kids!
