The "Civility Solution" is fine and timely, but there seems to be a trend in popular culture to celebrate the opposite. For a deeply unpleasant example, watch any clip with the british celebrity chef´Gordon Ramsay, eg here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M-l0Wx32vfc&feature=related

Interesting timing. I just had an interaction with a fellow driver the other day which astounded me because the other driver broke the law and then lectured me through my open window about how I had been mean to him. I had no real idea how to deal with him and so after a couple aborted attempted sentences (he wouldn't let me speak) I just said "You know what, I'm not going to argue about this" and ignored him. I'm still not sure what the best way to deal with that was.
