"I woke up early Friday morning and, rather than turning on ESPN, which is my wont, I surfed movies and found that 'Mr. Smith Goes to Washington' had started only a few minutes earlier. Once I start watching that movie, I'm hooked and I hang in for the whole thing. What struck me this time, which was probably about my third or fourth time, was how well Frank Capra nailed it on some of the most important things about public choice, things that I talk about in class when I teach a segment on public choice."
