Yesterday at the National Museum of Naval Aviation, I briefly paused at a model of an aircraft carrier. This one was covered with miniature planes and people hard at work. A little girl, about 5 or 6 years old, pointed out the sailors to her little companions.
“This is how big people used to be in the old days,” she sagely informed them.
What she lacked in truth, she made up for in conviction.
Hmmm. That last sentence could apply to many a politician.
