america is

having your daughter tell the check-out lady at the grocery store who you are going to vote for and having said lady suddenly stop chatting with you, and then you walking to the car feeling bad that the lady had been offended, but as you finish piling kids and food, you are greeted by that same but now breathless lady who had gone and run all over the sprawling parking lot to find you and give you a bag of groceries you’d accidentally left behind in the store.



I wish our elected officials had that level of civility.
