While this George Will article – on the pop tart incident which landed a 7 year old boy in trouble with his school because he shaped said pop tart into the shape of a gun – is uninteresting because it is obvious, he does conclude with a magnificent flourish:

Government is failing spectacularly at its core functions, such as budgeting and educating. Yet it continues to multiply its peripheral and esoteric responsibilities, tasks that require it to do things for which it has no aptitude, such as thinking and making common-sense judgments. Government nowadays is not just embarrassing, it is — let us not mince words —inappropriate.

-JD Cross
