Taking a stand against politics of hate

It was nice - at least for a couple of hours - to see the 'united' return to the United State last night.

Democrats and Republicans gathered on the baseball field to play a charity baseball game - but also to make a statement.

We will not be cowed by those who resort to violence.

I hope it will continue.

My fear is that it will not.

On our editorial page today, we talk about the politics of hate.

It is what happens when partisan bickering goes on steroids.

This is not a Democratic issue, nor a Republican issue.

It's not left or right.

Both sides have resorted to these kinds of attacks.

We're better than this.

At least I hope we are.
