Behind the State
As I waited for my number to be called at the DMV this week, I had plenty of time to reassess my longstanding antipathy of government agencies. They're inherently inefficient and wasteful. Yet when my turn to write a check finally came, I encountered a friendly clerk. Her humanity reminded me that our government is not evil. It's just inevitably incompetent. That's why I don't relate to hysterical freaks on the right or the left.
