The Augusta National Golf Club has suffered its first defection. Read about it on MSNBC.com.
Apparently Mr. Wyman does not respect the right of private organizations to choose their own members. That’s his privilege. However, in agitating for CBS to join in a boycott of Augusta is going too far. It is doubtful he will find support there.
Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer affirm the right of the club to follow its own moral compass. Does anyone have the right to force such members to bow to their will?
The answer is a resounding “No”. Hootie Johnson and his fellow members should vote to bulldoze the club before bowing to the pressure of a special interest group that is attempting to force an unpopular agenda down their throats.
