Santa and My Government

by David on February 13, 2012

Maybe you had this experience: you finally realized, or were told, that someone else bought the gifts attributed to Santa. I was disappointed, but instinctively knew that reality was better fantasy, no matter how sad it made me to find out. I’ve survived many fantasies. One is that our government tells us the truth about everything it does. And I used to find it even harder to say out loud than it was to believe. But reality is still better, if painful at times.
