[OP-ED]: What Maher said is no laughing matter

HBO needs to fire Maher. He is never going to change. Getting rid of him is the right thing to do. And it would send the message that, even in comedy, decency counts for a lot, and some things are no laughing matter.
English

My fellow Americans, I have to ask: What happened to good manners? When did being civil go out of style? When did we decide that kindness equals weakness? When did the idea of conducting yourself well -- especially in public -- become quaint?
