For your amusement, Government is Good: An Unapologetic Defense of a Vital Institution a website by Douglas J. Amy, Professor of Politics at Mount Holyoke College:
I found this from Revitalizing the Public Sector, particularly funny:
Strategies for revitalizing government include publicizing its achievements, working to “reframe” government in the public consciousness, and building a pro-government political coalition.
It’ll be a wonderful day for Professor Amy when he wakes up and realizes that a “pro-government political coalition” is all around him. [Thanks MetaFilter]2:56 pm on October 11, 2007 Email Stephen W. Carson
