The Smallest Minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities. - Ayn Rand
Actually it's an old-school liberal - life, liberty, etc. - versus a new-school liberal - life is what we say it is; liberty is when we say you can - idea. And the old school guys are reaping the whirlwind of what they sowed.
T.J. Rogers is a fascinating character. I like his position on employee drug testing, but the best thing I ever read from him was shortly after a large layoff at a Lucent engineering facility made front page news. It took him almost a week to get down there, and by then everyone had already been hired. Somehow that wasn't news.
I also like how he stood up to the Rebrunn Jackson and his Traveling Rent-A-Rant Show several years back in the Silicon Valley. He was not going to be frog-marched like Toyota and Budweiser.
