Minding one's manners
in a civilized society
A lecture by P.M. Forni
sponsored by the College of Business and Economics provided the
basis for Lauren Taylor's feature about manners in the workplace.
According to Forni, who directs the Johns Hopkins Civility Project,
six of 10 Americans believe Americans are rude and 89 percent say
incivility is a problem. He attributed the problem to lack of self-restraint,
anonymity, stress and pursuit of an individual identity in a society
rate rose to 4.2% in Feb.

Hopkins spoke to John Hopkins, RESI, about a Labor Department report
showing Maryland's jobless rate had inched upward as the labor force
swelled. Hopkins said employers could face an even tougher time,
noting that "if the momentum continues, Maryland could find
itself in a labor shortage," though he doesn't see signs of
a general shortage yet. The state's unemployment rate remains well
below the national rate of 5.4 percent.
Local flocks mourning
their missing shepherd
The Rev. Robert Albright,
campus Catholic minister, was one of several area academics and/or
clergymen who spoke about Pope John Paul II's legacy. "In this
age of globalization he made us aware that there is more to this
life than just our own little world, and that everyone, no matter
how rich or poor, or what color or religion, is sacred in the eyes
of God," he said."[The pope] looked at the followers of
all religions of the world as brothers and sisters."
