In this morning's Washington Post, Michael Gerson on the importance of manners. The entire article makes an important point but I would especially call attention to his noting that morals and manners are very different, and that the latter is profoundly conditioned by culture. Then he writes: "But being relative does not make them trivial." The word "relativism" has been thrown around too lightly in RC circles.
