The Little Blue Car
Tommy and I are now grown up and grown old, and I've long since lost contact with him. But I've since known a lot of Tommys. A generation ago it was "you can't eat in my restaurant, join my club, live in my neighborhood because of your skin color." Now it's "you homosexuals can't marry because that would cheapen my heterosexual marriage," or "you can't have affordable medical care because that would give you something I have earned with my successes."
The truth is, "I'm not special if you have what I have." Greed is nothing more than The Little Blue Car.
