The D.C. pledge of allegiance

Reading Joseph Stiglitz over at Washington’s blog (link--read) who’s now talking about the unraveling of the social contract and the rule of law made me think of a bit of foolscap I’ve had on my computer for a few weeks.  I offer it without apology, insisting that I wish the real pledge were more accurate at this historical juncture:

I pledge allegiance to the law, and to the ruling class for which it serves,

our people, above the others—infinitely divisible—with sham democracy and breadcrumbs for all.
