The Love Department
Dennis Kucinich is authoring a bill to create a US Department of Peace. I have some other brilliant ideas for new departments. My favorite is:
The Love Department. We have reached a point in society where we prefer to delegate our most important decisions (retirement, health care, etc.) to government. With the divorce rate at over fifty percent per marriage, it is clear that the government should step in to regulate the matchmaking process. A department must be formed, administrators, sub-administrators and hordes of staffers hired to cull through databases of single men, women, and other, matching each for the highest probability of marital success. A sub-department dedicated to gene-matching should also be established. If we agree that society works best with intact families, I can foresee no viable or cogent opposition.
