The bad with the good

Why shouldn't a business owner be able to discriminate:

A black city cop says a trendy Times Square bowling alley threw him a racist gutter ball - and he's suing.

Aubrey Henry says he was barred from the Lucky Strike Lanes on W.42nd St. by a bouncer who said his hiking boots did not meet the dress code.

He said the same bouncer let in white bowlers wearing similar footwear.

(We'll not mention how silly it sounds to be spending $300/hr on a single bowling lane!)

I was listening to Vicious Circle #42 yesterday, and I heard Alan say that (and I'm paraphrasing) if we're to live in a free society, we must accept the trade-offs.

I whole-heartedly agree, and am willing to do so. I learned a long time ago that you can't always get what you want ...... you just have to live with it.

So, if a bowling alley doesn't want to allow blacks (or Jews or whites or whatever), they should be allowed to exclude whomever they want to. The individual members of society would then be allowed to frequent (or not) that business.

In this world, there will be all sorts of things we don't like, or that we think aren't fair ....... but there will also be things that we shouldn't try to do anything about.
