How things are

A couple of months ago I posted some thoughts on the great Frank Capra movie, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939). I’m sure Capra wanted to leave us hopeful and optimistic but I watched the movie again recently and realized I don’t know any Jefferson Smiths… but there’s no shortage of Senator Paines.

This clip really sums it all up for me. Fill a crop duster with Sodium Pentathol, take a couple of passes over DC or any state capitol, and this is what you’d hear.
