Holding forth on the handbag ruling

July 06, 2007

Re "A righteous handbag," editorial, July 2

I find inspiring the final sentence of this editorial: "To the greatest extent possible, the law should avoid interfering in consensual agreements." What a beautiful concept, perfect in its simplicity. And if the commodity is marijuana, or if one of the consenting parties happens to be a prostitute, this same standard would apply -- in a true "land of the free."

Contrary to what The Times says, it just will mean President Bush's court has raised prices for all, including those of us who shop at 99ยข Only Stores.
