Salt Lake City, UT – Critic and author David Denby is concerned about the way Americans talk to one another. People have been "snarky" - hurling personal insults and sharpening their wit - since ancient times. But Denby says that in the age of the internet, snark is spreading like pink-eye. Thursday on RadioWest, Denby joins Doug to talk about civility, humor and when it's appropriate to be cruel.
