Several days ago I thought back upon a conversation that my dearly departed father and I once had. I said, “Rodney King asks a good question, Dad. ‘Why can’t we all get along?’” My father profoundly said, “It’s because we don’t want to.”
Nevertheless, I am very thankful that some people are trying to get along with each other. On Feb. 4, Russell Haddad announced that he was dropping the assault charge against Bob Steinburg because he wanted to put the incident that produced it behind him. Haddad contritely said, “We all — Bill Luton, Bob Steinburg, and himself — had a role in what I consider an embarrassing incident.”
I agree wholeheartedly with what Steinburg said: “Mr. Haddad did the right thing.” It is really wonderful and good for people to live together in harmony.
