Ah, the wonders of privatization.  Despite sequestration, the annual White House Easter Egg roll takes place today, subsidized -- not by your tax dollars -- but by corporate sponsors and the sale of souvenir eggs.

The chicken littles at PBS and fans of the Post Office might want to take note.  There are plenty of ways to survive (and thrive!) without supping at the government trough . . . but only if you are providing a good or service that people actually need or want. Sure, it may take a little more creativity and a bit of initiative, but in the end, isn't it nobler than accepting money that people are forced to turn over whether they want to or not?
