Letter: Manners have a place in civil society

Since January 1986 I have never seen or known Mark Scott to lose his cool at a public meeting until I read “Frutos asks for review of Mark Scott's performance” (April 12). Boy! I'm glad I did not attend that Burbank City Council session. I had wanted to make a cameo appearance. The shock would have really shaken me.

Mark Scott had to deal with a crowd in Beverly Hills that nagged and harangued, but you folks took the cake by being disrespectful.

Mark Scott, stick to your guns to demand respect and a decent code of conduct at city meetings. For those you who like to improve your civility and public image, I suggest you read books on etiquette to refine yourselves. Low-class behavior and frenzied mob psychology is gutter chic.

Bad manners is so widespread as common practice. Only the barbarians think it's proper. No more vicious attacks on the gentleman.
