The news is filled with the story of a Christmas "miracle" - a family who went out to cut down a Christmas tree and got lost in the snow for three days. The father pointedly appears on TV now with a "Jesus is my Pal" baseball cap. But it wasn't Jesus or a miracle that rescued the Dominguez family - it was the California Highway Patrol, something you'll be hard-pressed to learn unless you read the news very carefully. The real "miracle" is that government services in this country haven't yet been gutted so much that such services weren't available, or totally privatized, available only to the rich.
