"Suppose, for a minute, that several of your neighbors came to your door and presented you with a paper on which they had written, in quite formal language, their intent to build a playground for neighborhood children, and that this enterprise was to be funded by a 'contribution' from you, among others. 'No thanks,' you tell them. ... 'But,' they say, 'just look at this impressive document. We’ve affixed our signatures to it, and our group leader has put his seal upon it. Just look!' You laugh and close the door; they leave, mumbling." (11/16/11)
