It has been interesting in recent weeks to see the renewed faith some people have in government’s capabilities. To be helpful, I’ve compiled a partial list of recent headlines:
“Desperate Americans ask government vaccine coordinators to fix Chick-fil-A’s drive-thrus”
“Why the U.S. Postal Service should acquire Amazon and fix its money-bleeding operations”
“Opinion poll: Majority says the Apple Store would work better if the DMV were in charge”
OK, OK: Those were “fake news,” not real headlines. You may have even recognized that, in some cases, I turned reality on its head.
For example, the mayor of Mount Pleasant, S.C., asked the manager of his local Chick-fil-A for help with improving the traffic flow at a drive-thru vaccine clinic. As you’d expect, the wait times were reduced from one hour to just 15 minutes.
