Peggy Noonan gets the vapors about the today's state of robust debate. Sure, some of 'em are over the top but most aren't and it's those who argue sensibly, and politely, that most people listen to. So man up, Peggy.

But she redeems her column with a great closing. Forget all that other stuff she says. Take away this:
And they'll have obits someday too. Their careers will be captured in eulogies, leaving their children proud, or not. In a way you're writing your own obit every day. You're making the lead paragraph positive and constructive, or not.

Someone's going to sum you up one day. You want to live your professional life in a way that they can write good things.
