Fantastic article from Peggy Noonan

Peggy Noonan is always perceptive and articulate. However, I think her column from yesterday was particularly excellent.

Here is an excerpt from her column where she discusses the shift in values in American culture:

I want to make sure I understand. If you smoke a cigarette on a beach in modern America you are harming the innocent. If you have a baby scraped from your womb, you are protecting your freedom. If you sell a pack of cigarettes to a 12-year-old boy you can be jailed, fined and sent to Guantanamo Bay with the other killers. If you sell a pack of contraceptives to a 12 year old boy in modern America you are socially responsible citizen.
