Extreme Rhetoric

Of course, everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but that doesn't give The Tennessean's editorial writers the right to just make things up. Today's editorial refers to a Supreme Court decision striking down government forced racial discrimination as being in opposition to freedom of association. They refer to a narrow ruling that a school can restrict speech by students advocating drug use as one that "squelches freedom of speech."

Then, they say that another ruling will lead to higher prices on all manner of goods. That ruling said that vertical cost controls should not be prohibited automatically, but that they should be subject to the "rule of reason."

It is understandable that The Tennessean has difficulty with the concept of reason.
