First, do no harm

You have to laugh when lieutenants in Art Pope's right-wing militia start getting philosophical. This latest from one of the clones reveals hypocrisy taken to new heights.

The subject in this case is property rights. And before we dive in, let me say that I generally agree with the wingers on some key issues here. Standing in for John Hood today, Daren Bakst writes:

This is a critical time for private property rights in North Carolina. The work the committee does now could affect North Carolinians for generations to come. If the committee members do cause harm and make mistakes, it is much better that they err on the side of protecting individual rights than ensuring that government has necessary power.

Apologies

Friends.

My brush with John Hood of the John Locke Foundation has proven instructive. I looked at my comments through his eyes and didn't like what I saw. I'm turning into an angry jerk.

So for that I apologize -- to him and you all. I promise to do better, though I reserve the right to rant at any time for no reason.

Feel free to call me on it. I'm trainable.
