Confederate Flag : South Carolina :: Baseball : Washington, DC

Seriously. As people all over the country and in and out of every community sit by and wait for the people they've called to serve to actually start serving, those servants are off putting their bodies and minds to work on the most nonsensical activities. How many wasted hours? How much wasted energy and sweat. One wonders if at the end of a life or career, any of them realize: "By God, when I could have been doing something important, I was off restitching a flag or trying to bring a crappy sports team to town."

Water naturally flows into the deepest and lowest places from the heights. You can build pipes and aqueducts that get that water where it's needed, or you can stomp around in puddles like pre-schoolers.
