Funny show

I don't watch much TV, but I did make a point to catch the show Parks and Recreation. The show is freaking hilarious. As you may surmise, it is about a local department of rec and parks in a small town in Indiana. The dept even has its own fake website.

The department head, ironically, thinks that parks should be run by private corporations for a profit. I guess that is supposed to be funny, but I think it makes a lot of sense. He basically took the government job because he couldn't get hired at Chuck E. Cheese. On his desk, he has a sawed off shotgun that was owned by a bootlegger, as his way of mocking the government. Awesomeness!

I just heard about the Independent Institute on C-Span and when googled, it shows nearly 42 million results. How has this organization escaped notice for so long?

Private profit-making parks? That's ridiculous. Why, if the government didn't create parks, there wouldn't be any parks. And if the government didn't provide us with shoes, we wouldn't have any shoes. And if the government didn't provide us with bread, we'd all go hungry.
