So the 2018 election campaign is officially over (or as a cynical friend of mine put it, the 2020 election campaign has officially begun). Every election I think we’ve hit a new low with regard to decency and civil discourse.
Serena Williams’ tantrum at the U.S. Open (that’s tennis, for sports fans only interested in a ball with points) was not her first by any means. She has quite the track record, actually, of verbal abuse, court abuse, equipment abuse, and general abuse of principles of basic decency.
All of these incidents seem to have one thing in common: Serena was losing the match at the time of the incident.
