    My dad worked in the medical field and during the '80s AIDs positive guys--like ones nearing the end, with the AIDs induced dementia-- would come into the hospital and try and spit on the nurses and doctors. They simply restrained them, wore gloves and placed them in the Psych unit.

    You can't get HIV through spit. However, Hep-C you can I believe.

I had one in the special needs unit(as well as on a regular house when I had one) who was the most annoying human being I ever saw. Thankfully his cellmate took matters into his own hand and cold cocked him.

    Same goes for me as an attorney. Everyone has a right to an attorney. They don't have the right to me as an attorney.
    I'm inclined to agree with you. I don't see why there is an exception the the Fair Housing laws for small property owners and the "intimacy" of owner occupied small buildings, an exception to the EEO laws for small businesses with fewer than X employees, and yet no exemption in most places for one client at a time type businesses. I'm not sure how you would distinguish a photographer from an owner operated dress shop, and I'm not sure the exemption should extend to a business done in a fixed premises.

    Do we really think that a corner store should be able to refuse entry to people on arbitrary preferences or prejudices?

    Most discrimination stings of all kinds are conducted against persons about whom a complaint has been made. Fair Housing does do some experiments on random targets, but most of the time they know that a place is discriminating before they send the tester in.

    Actually your complaint about me is that I make a conscious effort to be objective.

    I see a difference between selling widgets and selling your personal time and services. If someone has to spend 5 hours at an event that they find morally repugnant, simply because they choose to sell their services for other events doesn't mean that they have to sell them for yours.
