I had another invaluable experience in a on-going education of my daughter against the unfairness of big government. We were parking at an old fashioned coin meter and I asked her to put the quarters in. My daughter didn’t realize there was a forty minute time limit on the machine. That’s two quarters. She put in three. I told her of her mistake and she instantly started looking for a coin return. I told her there isn’t one. She was positively outraged. Yup, I said, that’s the difference between private enterprise and the government. You put in an extra quarter in the Coke machine, you are supposed to get it back. Give a quarter to the government and you will never see it again.
