Oh, the Wisdom of Will

After hearing me comment that I'd be working on taxes tonight, Will asked me curiously why we have to pay taxes. I replied, (after quickly trying to think of a "better" answer and failing, "Because we have to. It's the law." "But why?", he persisted. "The government doesn't do anything for us!" I actually laughed out loud, and then tried to think of stuff the government DOES do for us, to back up my point. Besides road maintenance and police, I fell embarrassingly short. (I know, there's lots more; I just couldn't think on the spot!) Will looked pleased, as if he'd just proved a point. Oh my. :)
