A light bulb over my head about waste...

Government waste, that is. I read a rant- from a legislator, no less- about government waste. Specifically, a heated garage for the legislators to park in With the doors standing open, at 2 A. M., in the winter time. I see tremendous amounts of waste in government.

But then I realised, it's not waste at ALL. It's PATRONAGE, because the money goes to some one, doesn't it? Even if it's just keeping a parking garage at 75 degrees, there's someone who is grateful, because he was paid to install and run that heating system.

It seems obvious, and it ought to be in the forefront of all our minds. Who, whom? as Lenin said.
