The fact is that we don't have a right to anything that must be provided by others.

I agree that "right" is one of the most overused words in the public square. I almost had a heart attack when the venerable WSJ opined in an editorial about our "right to safety." Just shows to go ya how ridiculous things can get, when arguably the most reliable institutional conservative voice in the press falls victim.

But since it isn't about to stop, I just ignore it and concentrate on my next martini.
