Political Correctness: Whose Right, Whose Wrong?


                                           Good Day World!

I'm really enjoying the break in the weather here in Medford. The sun is out! No rain. No snow. It's all good.

Speaking of what's good, and what's bad, I'm going to test the waters today with you dear reader. Let me know if I'm hot, or cold, for examining political correctness.

Four years ago I wrote this post - prior to the Me Too Movement:

How Off-The-Cuff Remarks Ruin Careers

I took the position that one controversial statement shouldn't ruin the career of a Nobel Prize winner with a positive life story.

In view of the evolving narrative about empowering women would you say that my post was:
a) enabling a bad man?
b) giving Republicans a talking point?
c)  or, an early warning sign for what lie ahead in political discourse?

From time-to-time I like to look back at an op-ed I wrote and see how it stands years later. Was I on the wrong or right side of his history?

You tell me.

Time for me to walk on down the road...
