I was watching a program called "FBI Takedowns" last night. They were about to raid a dangerous criminal's apartment: darkened hallway, men in tactical gear with weapons at the ready, guy at the front swings the battering ram into the door...and they go to commercial.

Nothing new, right? Big dramatic moment and cut to a commercial. Happens all the time. But the commercial was one for a movie coming out in a week or two. So picture, if you will:
men in tactical gear with weapons at the ready in a darkened hallway about to raid a dangerous criminal's apartment. The guy at the front swings the battering ram into the door...and Tom Hanks, as Mister Rogers, looks up and says, "Hello".


SALUTE TO ALL!

Well, Mister Rogers could have been armed. I mean, really....nobody can be that sweet. You can't be too careful.

And we all know that Mr Rogers was actually a Marine sniper in Vietnam with hundreds of kills.....

“Government has three primary functions. It should provide for military defense of the nation. It should enforce contracts between individuals. It should protect citizens from crimes against themselves or their property. When government-- in pursuit of good intentions tries to rearrange the economy, legislate morality, or help special interests, the cost comes in inefficiency, lack of motivation, and loss of freedom. Government should be a referee, not an active player.” - Milton Friedman
