What I Love The Most

Well, John Sabotta likes to hammer away at me for my "hate," which is to some extent a valid criticism -- though I maintain that my hate is well placed, when properly understood. But it got me to wondering what I love the most in this here "democracy;" so here it is, by way of an experience last night that repeats itself in myriad ways, often. How many remember this little incident?
