 POLITICS IS THE ONLY GAME FOR ADULTS…ALL THE REST ARE FOR CHILDREN

 Often attributed to President Kennedy, this sentiment likely derives from Robert A. Heinlein’s
 statement about politics that “It's rough and sometimes it's dirty and it's always hard work and
 tedious details. But it's the only sport for grownups.”
 
 The adage had long been on a sticky note on my bulletin board – a source of mild amusement
 as I went about my work rather than a stimulator of deep thought.
 I threw the sticky note away today.
 
 A game has opponents – adversaries – who work hard to defeat the other side and parade
 away as the victor. You never see one team say to another “Hey, let’s work together to see
 how many points we can score” or “Let’s wear the same color jersey and set aside our rivalry for the day.”
