A couple of years ago there was this Flash Mob, I collect flash mobs, of kids as young as 5 playing and singing at a shopping mall. Then I discovered another street happening they did and finally these annual competitions straight from a Not Hungry Games. The French!
I know the jokes, I know Liberty Fries, and I know Paris, but I've never been to France, know what I mean? Have you seen the tour of European schools by that little fat guy who makes documentaries? It was on PBS. What these kids eat everyday for lunch, free, is amazing. Here we shame kids who can't pay for the lunch. They feed them. All of them.
Okay, their taxes are high, they have a wacky government and the Napoleonic Code but they feed their kids!!! And they still have a powerful, well-trained military. Did I mention they feed their kids?
Look what they do with a few billion left over from sending some Aerospace company to hell, or whatever place the Arts budget comes from. Look at the joy and confidence of these children.
