    If only the government would go away, then we'd all be beautiful, wonderful people, a kibbutz of 300 million.

    I've never bought it.  Every society needs cops.  Well-trained, law-abiding cops.  And it's a shame that the bad ones make the news, especially because the good ones are trained to shy away from media.  Actually, it's sort of like the federal administrative agencies - they're rarely in the news because something went right, because they prevented an epidemic before it started or because of planes crashes that never happen because of the FAA and highways that never collapsed because of DOT's stronger contracting standards.  Only when things go to shit do they make the news.

    I was actually kind of surprised to read recently the number of police officers who never discharge their firearms at all in their careers outside of training.  Wish I had bookmarked that somewhere.

    "The first drawback of anger is that it destroys your inner peace; the second is that it distorts your view of reality. If you come to understand that anger is really unhelpful, you can begin to distance yourself from anger." - The Dalai Lama
