Wow. You must have a chip on your shoulder, Mike. I have spent
quite a bit of my life in public schools and public libraries, and I was
always treated like a human being. I haven't had much occasion to use
other government facilities, except post offices. I hate going to the
post office, it's a zoo, but if I am friendly to the clerks, they are usually
friendly to me. I have also been treated in a friendly manner by the
staff in public parks, swimming pools, etc.

I have run into a certain amount of rudeness, but very little of it
was in government facilities.
