I had an experience today that really helped to put things into perspective. I was having a conversation with a sick, elderly lady about how government cutbacks are responsible for her not receiving as much care at home as she used to. She gets to have a bath 2 times a week now instead of 5 times in the past. She's a nice, peaceful lady. As we were discussing that, she all of a sudden got really passionate and angry and said something like "and here they are spending all this money on a stadium!"

It really hit home for me how the government has all this "extra" money to spend on stadiums, yet our health care system is in the dumper and people are going without service or having to wait way longer than is humane.
