Salt Lake City, UT – The writer Jay Heinrichs says that Americans aren't argumentative enough. Not really. Nothing particularly artful about the shouting that passes for argument in public discourse these days. But for Heinrichs, a proper argument is an art and quite an ancient one. Today on RadioWest, we're rebroadcasting our conversation about the art of rhetoric. This isn't a fight. Rhetoric, Heinrichs says, is the essential skill of leadership and the better we do it, the more civil our society. (Rebroadcast).
