Where has everybody’s manners gone? Doesn’t anybody have good manners anymore ?
For over 40 years, syndicated columnist Judith Martin — better known as Miss Manners — has been helping people navigate the often confusing Waters of good manners .
In her polite but firm way, Martin answers readers questions about what constitutes good manners and good etiquette in today’s world.
In 1990, Martin wrote a book called Miss Manners Guide For The Turn of Tthe Millennium. And that was when I had one of many conversations that I’ve had with her over the years.
And as we get into this interview, keep in mind that this was in 1990, before the internet, before instant messages, before cell phones, voicemail, and whatever else has come along since.
So here now, from 1990, Judith Martin.
Judith Martin is 83 now. She lives in Washington, DC.
