OK, I get where you are coming from (I really do). But do you get that the reason someone like Ms. Giffords gets special attention is because she
REPRESENTS (sorry to yell, but you yelled first - just a joke, OK?) thousands of people. Yes, on a certain level, she is special. Please try to put
aside the usual disgust we all feel for politicians, and think that maybe, in an ideal world, our representatives are looking out for our best
interests. Sounds simplistic, dopey, sappy, etc., but by running for office, being elected, and coming back home to speak with a dozen or so people
in a parking lot, she is doing something to affirm and advance the nation. Like it or not (and I have absolutely no dog in this fight - mine is
sleeping at my feet right now), she deserves the best care we can give her. We all do, but I don't begrudge her the attention she is now receiving.
