"A Smash-Mouth Culture"

This is from Peter King's weekly NFL column for Sports Illustrated:

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

"The signs of disrespect are all around us. We are living in a smash-mouth culture in which extremists dominate public debate to the point of hijacking it."

-- University of Pennsylvania president Amy Gutmann, in a speech to the graduating class at Wesleyan (Conn.) University, as quoted by the New York Times.

I wish I'd said that.

Me, too.
