For the Children


Seems as though every time some denizen of Foggy Bottom proposes another Boondoggle or Power Grab, he invokes "the children." "We must do this for the children," intoned sanctimoniously, and perhaps even with a tear at the corner of the eye. Booshwa.

If they really cared about the children, they'd quit stealing from them.

Grace, it's the invocation of "the children." I try to assess the proposals on their merits or lack thereof.

Jim, surely you jest.

I understand what you are saying, and agree completely!

Chuck, it's nice to know I'm not out there all alone!
