In a period of over-indulged political correctness, there's a concept lost in the obscurity of discontent. It's presence is felt in almost every conversation on every subject; not just politics. It's a shame our society was ever saddled with this particular brand of censorship. What is it? Taking offense. Finding too many excuses to be offended by someone else's this and that.
"You offend me" has taken the place of an old public sentiment that used to be funny: "Where's the beef?" Perhaps the latter is an appropriate question for the former.
Yes, we have the right to be offended. We don't have a First Amendment without it. However. to dwell on being offended is merely to take up time and space complaining about it. It is the mark of Mark Twain's fool ["Better to close your mouth and be thought a fool than to open it and remove all doubt."]
