Shorter Boortz: Boortz:
If you don’t make it illegal for people to make dumb suicidal choices, their blood is on your hands.
P.S. I like mandatory seatbelt laws and I think that they are consistent with an enlightened freedom-loving system. After all, as Boortz points out, they are public roads (the public monopoly on roadways does little to reduce the force of that argument to my mind), and of course more fatalities means a higher insurance bill even for those of us who do strap in. But “blood on his hands”? Really? Even when Boortz embraces statism he’s so over the top as to be hilarious.
P.P.S. Should I just combine the “Boortz” and “Humor” categories?
