A Telling Exchange with the Unionist
Yesterday, I related an anecdote in which I used my vehicle as a means of forcing traffic etiquette. The part of the tale on which National Education Association of Rhode Island Assistant Executive Director Patrick Crowley honed in was that I’d used my work van to get to a political event:
You are allowed to use your work van for political and blog work?
My response, of course, was that I own my work van and require nobody to grant me permission to use it however I like. It’s a freedom thing, and I can’t help but feel that these few sentences of banter trace back to fundamental differences in opinion about reality and the rights of man.
