Treating others as we would treat ourselves is an age-old axiom that bears repeating, especially in light of some of the ways that doesn't happen.
In particular, it was recently reported that a New Jersey woman was stabbed in the face on a New York City subway -- after she asked a man not to smoke on the train.
The attack occurred on the No. 3 train near Chambers Street on Tuesday morning. The woman was later treated and released at an areas hospital, while her alleged attacker was charged with felony assault and possession of a weapon.
