Mr. Ayers, as you are well aware, I disagree with you on matters political; however, your recent column I thoroughly enjoyed. I was born and raised in England, my mother died at the latter end of World War II, which left my brother and me to be raised by grandparents on my father’s side. Father was still serving in the Royal Navy, hence thank heaven for grandparents.
Although from a working-class background, my grandparents made it abundantly clear that courtesy, respect, manners and a dress code were a vital part of our formative years. Your column brought back fond memories for which I sincerely thank you.
