Wandering the streets of DC one cold December morning, I saw this juxtaposition and thought it clearly represented how I felt about our government. I don't spend much time pointing fingers or gnashing teeth, and I am certainly more than willing to pay my taxes. Still, at times, it feels like someone has locked the doors, put up a fence and is sitting on a rocking chair with a shotgun. Y'all aint welcome here. I have hopes for 2008.
