In preparation for our recent trip to Washington D.C., we read a few books and watched a couple of videos about it. (One was an excellent book called This Is Washington D.C., first published in 1969 and updated.)
One afternoon in the hotel, Jonah came up with rules for his own country (a bunch of scribbles, which he read to me with great authority):
No taking other people’s money that doesn’t belong to you.
If you break the laws of the country, you have to leave the country.”
