A tree hugger, a redneck and a feminist go into a meeting . . .
Here’s an idea: Let’s pick a group of people who have very little in common — different moral standpoints, different ideas, different ways of speaking. Let’s put them in charge of important stuff like safety, drinking water, the economy, housing and community planning. And, let’s make them do this for three years. Also, let’s pay them so little that they have other reasons for doing this job, like personal interests or generalized nuttiness. That would be awesome!
