I’m A Sap

The family watched “Swing Vote” last night. I used to feel a little sheepish quoting lines from movies. I always thought, surely, I could come up with a better line. Then it dawned on me that Hollywood can afford the best writers in the world -- and I couldn’t.

Anyway, it’s a cute movie -- worth an evening if you haven’t seen it. And it has one killer line towards the end of the movie:

“...If this is one of the richest countries in the world, why is it so many of us can barely afford living here?”

It reminded me of another great line.

”The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little."

Franklin D. Roosevelt
