Um...great idea. You realize of course, Michael, that the pols will keep the gas tax in place and put the transponders on the roads too.

Really like this tune...it has always been a favorite of mine since first hearing it. Yup...nailed the meaning within a minute or two and certainly by the last stanza. Opened this article hoping that I would see the song...and delighting in seeing it as a favorite of Mr. Adams.

We are no more consistent or inconsistent than many liberals or progressives or whatever the current moniker. I would say, though, that conservatives are more attuned to the limited government model created by the Founders, and that I find more appealing than the model of government regulation supported by said liberals.

As with freedom of expression (yelling "fire" in a crowded theatre), there are limits to freedom of association. I believe those limits are breached when talking about employment, as this is central to being able to enjoy the pursuit of happiness. As for forming clubs, I believe that social and cultural pressure would prevent the formation of a club nowadays that would exclude people on the basis of race. (Perhaps I am Polyanna, but I think we have grown much in the past 50 or so years.) On the other hand, men's clubs and women's clubs would likely be accepted to a large degree as people understand and accept the differences between men and women. Banning such associations would only have the members "dig in," to resist change. Great column Professor Williams. Thank you for writing it.
Because I, the man of the house, am also the chef on Thanksgiving, I get to pretty much watch what I want...and I am a football fan. The cooking does require some interaction, though (I cannot bring myself to use the word "intercourse" when applied to females other than my spouse) this is done during commercials (please bring me the blender, yes you can pull the sweet potatoes from the oven, etc...). My wife, mother-in-law, and three daughters really like the way I cook this particular meal so I get my day of football and a great feast without hacking off my family.
