I do wonder why my own family followed the Law. Why we waited when asked. Why we spent two years withotu my Dad, while he waited longer. We really should have just come.
I attended a HS graduation tonight. Some people got there over an hour early to get a good seat in the front. Turns out it didn't matter, because once the graduates started receiving their diplomas people ran to the front and stood right in front of the seated crowd (completely ignoring security's request to sit back down). Some even filtered into the graduates to get an "up close" shot. They talked through the salutatorian and valedictorian addresses to the point no one could hear what they were saying.
Face it, we just don't live in a "cultured" society anymore. The people who choose to do what is right are pretty much guaranteed to get screwed. And it's likely not going to change because those types of people aren't the ones who scream and complain until they get what they want.
