Plutocracy and Panera

two well-heeled gents sitting behind me at Panera. Says the one to the other: “it’s too hard to get a photo ID, but we’ll sit out front of the Apple store in a tent for three days waiting for the new iPhone. That’s what’s wrong with America.”

Listen here, tough guys. It’s not the people who camp out at the Apple Store that I’m worried about. It’s the people who camp out under the Eighth Street Bridge, or in the basement of the manse at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, or clandestinely in city parks, in rain, in bitter cold. Yesterday, the Court said that suffrage is an absolute right. Clearly, it’s the only one we all have in common.
