It’s wrong to blame Big Business for the nation’s economic ills. Big Government invasively meddles into the lives of Americans with too many rules and regulations limiting people’s freedom. The 2008 Great Recession was caused by the government, not Wall Street. The above statements are the gist of what I have been hearing from some members of the community. According to them, I give government a pass on accountability and unjustifiably blame business for the ills of society.

Before The Summit on Enumclaw’s Roosevelt Avenue was a church, it was a bowling alley. Back in 1980-something when I was in afternoon kindergarten at Kibler Elementary, I frequented this bowling alley once a week with my dad. There was some sort of dairy farmer league in the mornings. So, after the chores were done and before the afternoon milking started, the Plateau dairymen gathered for some friendly competition.

I have few confessions to make. First, I need to confess that I’ve messed up. I’m aiming for the middle of the road here, a practical confession. By “middle of the road,” I mean that I want to avoid the extreme of excusing myself (Hey, I only acted on natural impulses, right?), while also avoiding the other extreme of burying myself in self-condemnation (a.k.a. “I’ll never be able to get anything right!”). It’s striking how quickly these childish responses can step in to divert my path away from effective confession.
