    I wonder sometimes if we would, nationally, benefit from National Service. Not in the military. In retail. I think every person in this country should be made to watch two years of their lives go sliding down the drain as they punch a register, wait tables, or what not. And I would investigate like an inquisitor every single case of someone claiming medical exemption.
