Simon, once again, sitting and eating his breakfast.  He's taken to reading the political cartoons in the newspaper, but, being 8, does not quite get them.

S: Mama?  What is 'plutocracy'?  The government of Pluto*?

Me: Um.  Plutocracy.... Yes.  Government of Pluto*.  They don't hold elections out there.

S: //rolls eyes and sighs//

[*Note: In our house, Pluto is still a planet. I'm old school like that.]
