  1. WHY does the word “character” have an old fashioned sound to me. I’m sure we are all still concerned with a person’s moral thoughts and actions. In fact, with all the marital double crossing in the headlines from political and sports figures, ethical behavior is very much in the headlines. But somehow the seriousness of deception seems to evoke responses that are more attuned to approve/disapprove. How is it that so many voters check the “APPROVE” box? Maybe it’s forgiveness which is a good thing. But maybe not. Character can be good or bad. It’s perhaps why Karsh speaks of it in this specific way, because it “develops” over time as one matures and begins to learn what it is to separate what enriches life from what tears it apart.
