My sister was telling a story about being in court with a woman who was losing custody of her children for near-total negligence. As in, failing to feed or wash them. The woman's excuse: "I would have taken care of them but I was not being serviced." In other words, the government was not changing the diapers or heating up the formula for her. "This was one of those people," my sister said, "who think that government is a big pig and we're all sucklings." I love my sister.
