Each week when it is time to compose my column, I find myself in prayer about what to write. Sometimes I feel a clear direction from God, other times it is something I have read in the Bible. Still other factors include events that have happened during the week that have caused me to reflect on God, life or human nature. The latter has inspired me to write about courtesy this week. Common courtesy is a fruit of the Spirit: ?But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control?

Starting with the first city, Los Angeles, we issued a Proclamation of Civility for Los Angeles in May 2009. Manners are spontaneous reactions from the heart. Etiquette involves codes of behavior of kindness and consideration toward others. What is civility, and where did the concept originate?

In my wildest dreams, I would never have imagined that I would get "the finger" in La Cañada from what some would consider an attractive 40-something woman in a new-model SUV (or from anyone, for that matter). My family has lived in the area for 40 years and I still cannot believe that I experienced such rude behavior in my very own neighborhood from one of my "neighbors. " I was driving south toward Foothill Boulevard on a Sunday afternoon, apparently too slowly for this woman, but at the speed limit.

I want to thank you for the article you recently ran about me winning the Emmy in New York ("LCF resident receives 'Price is Right' Emmy," June 3, by Ralph Saenz). I found it to be excellently written. Many of my friends saw it and greatly enjoyed reading it. I've had telephone interviews before but none was so accurately written as this article was. It was also a pleasure talking with Ralph that day on the telephone?his interview manner was quite enjoyable. Once again, I thank you for my "15 minutes of fame" in La Cañada.
