Our editor recently stumbled upon an image in one of the more obscure corners of the intertubes which we felt we had to share with our readers. It provides us with a nice metaphor for the meaningfulness of government activity. First, here is a look at the picture – just quietly contemplate it for while and let it work its magic on you:
[…] You may have noticed that the two gentlemen with the watering cans have two living umbrella-holders at their disposal. Obviously, they must be VIPs of some sort.
The tree getting victimized in the picture is actually a young fir, and one must fear that it will drown. Small firs do of course need water if they want to become big firs, but there can be too much of a good thing, and this may well be such a case.
