It's all our fault

John Leo summarizes the foolishness of liberals who can't be trusted to understand how to deal with terrorists because they don't understand what is going on.

I want to point out that this same kind of thinking permeates our society, especially the legal system. I have belonged to a very nice fitness center for the last 15 years or so which is almost as long as it has been open (it has indoor and outdoor pools, indoor and outdoor tennis, basketball court, running track, racqetball, exercise classes, all kinds of cardio machines, weight machines and free weights). The locker room has a sauna, steam room and whirlpool on the way to the showers.

Earlier this summer, the president of a local labor union was arrested for trying to perform a sex act on a young teenage boy in the steam room. Now there are signs up in the locker room which notify everyone that swim suits must be worn in the whirlpool, towels worn while walking to the showers, etc. In essence, the corporate owner (a hospital holding company) seems to wish that we could change clothes, use the bathroom and shower without ever being naked. Apparently, sexual assault is not the fault of the pervert, it is the fault of those people who are naked in the locker room.

What a ridiculous irritant.
