Simplicity requires a lot of effort. That’s why we have complexity.

The Haircut

One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he asked about his bill, and the barber replied, 'I cannot accept money from you; I'm doing community service this week.' The florist was pleased and left the shop. When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a 'thank you' card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.

Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you; I'm doing community service this week.' The cop was happy and left the shop. The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a 'thank you' card and a dozen donuts waiting for him at his door.

Then a Congressman came in for a haircut, and when he went to pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you. I'm doing community service this week.' The Congressman was very happy and left the shop. The next morning, when the barber went to open up, there were a dozen Congressmen lined up waiting for a free haircut.

And that illustrates the fundamental difference between the citizens of our country and the politicians who run it.

I'll add one more to the story: The next day a CEO comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you; I'm doing community service this week.' The CEO was pleased and left the shop. When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, he found his shop was bought by the CEO's company, his job was outsourced to India, and he was being sued for all he's worth, because the lawyers were bored. (And that illustrates the fundamental difference between the citizens of our country and the rich CEO's who own it.)

I wonder if Google will take some of their Wave technology and integrate it into G+. (Hint-hint-nudge-nudge-wink-wink.)
