In the San Francisco Bay Area

On an early, early flight out this morning I was reading Blaise Pascal again, and I came upon what seems to me a pretty good definition of political correctness, coming as it does from the 17th century. It's this:
We would not hesitate to act as cowards if by so doing we might acquire the reputation of being valiant.
Mutatis mutandis and all that.
