The New Definition of "Bold"

According to the headline in the Lexington Herald-Leader today on U of L's rejection of the importance of marriage, the move was a "bold step." Ironically, one of the arguments used by the university's trustees to give benefits to live-in homosexual and heterosexual couples is that everybody else is doing it.

Back in the days when public institutions encouraged marriage, "bold" meant going against the flow, and doing what everyone else did because everyone else was doing it was considered cowardice.

The story about the university's strong, courageous move to back down in the face of the newest fad in employee benefits (and which includes my remarks) can be found here.
