VACCINES: Question of rights

| May 12, 2021 1:00 AM

Donald Blanchard recently wrote The Press in spirited support of vaccination. In his writing, he informed us that being normal means compliance, that being smart means compliance, and that doing the right thing means compliance. Truly glorious in its fevered simplicity, no?

In his excellent letter, he passionately implored us to answer what seems among his most earnest and burning of questions:

“Do I have any rights when it comes to you not being vaccinated?”

There’s a correct answer to this question, and I thank The Press for an opportunity to provide some assistance on this matter:

“No, Donald. You don’t. You have no rights to me at all.”

I hope this adds to the wealth of knowledge Mr. Blanchard assures us he possesses in his breathless prose. It is meaningful to help someone who knows so much that isn’t so.
