After reading our example from earlier in the week, a reader in New York kindly sent another example of acute moral insight from Tennessee law professor Glenn Reynolds (who is apparently already renowned for his enthusiasm for murder, genocide and war!); in this case, Professor Reynolds is responding to a reader's query: "Why should we be all fired up about women's health and not men's health? Is there a special role of government in taking care of women? Why?". Reynolds' answer:
Because women want an Uncle Sugar to take the place of a husband?
Certainly that must be the reason.
