Recently I read in your pages that a young man was charged with a felony for throwing eggs at the courthouse. A felony? I’m certainly not defending the errant embryo pitcher’s juvenile actions, but does a felony make sense here? It absolutely doesn’t. If my house were egged, would it result in anything approaching this sort of response? Is the house of government that much more important than our own homes? Further, in an America that increasingly favors “the system” over the citizen, it’s no wonder we are seeing frustrated people resort to the more desperate ends of their abilities to speak to power.
This is utterly ridiculous.
Perhaps we should consider the nature and character of our interface with the hired help (government).
