I was walking to my car after work Monday, the hottest day of the year. I came upon a woman in an SUV, parked, with the motor running and the air conditioning on. As I walked past I slowly shook my head at her wastefulness. She rolled down the electric window and began screaming at me, “You got no right to shake your head. No right!”
I thought about this as I drove home, with the windows in my car rolled down. Maybe she’s right. Maybe I don’t have the right to judge her. But I’m certain our troops who are dying in Iraq do.
