Examples of Decorum in a Sentence

  1. Walter Scott:

  2. Sakara Remmu:

  3. Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin:

    The Republican Majority Leader announced over the weekend that he was going to hold this nomination of Loretta Lynch until the bill, which is pending before the Senate passes, whenever that may be, and so Loretta Lynch, the first African-American woman nominated to be attorney general, is asked to sit in the back of the bus when it comes to the Senate calendar.
