Carmine Villani: A haircutting tale

Carmine Villani

One day a florist goes to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he asked about his bill and the barber replies, “I cannot accept money from you. I’m doing community service this week.” The florist was pleased and left the shop. When the barber goes to open his shop the next morning there is 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 replies, “I cannot accept money from you. I’m doing community service this week.” The cop is happy and leaves the shop. The next morning when the barber goes to open up there is a thank-you card and a dozen donuts waiting for him at his door.

Then, a politician comes in for a haircut, and when he goes to pay his bill, the barber again replies, “I cannot accept money from you. I’m doing community service this week.” The politician is very happy and leaves the shop. The next morning, when the barber goes to open up, there are a dozen politicians lined up waiting for a free haircut.

My friends, this illustrates the fundamental difference between the citizens of our country and the members of our government. Vote carefully.
