Power. Is that what we are teaching them?
This might be cute to some people, but does it say more about how we are educating kids through our, possibly, questionable example? Kids see the truth behind what we are doing.
Surely we are not behaving correctly if they understand that serving the public is really serving oneself for the power it gives us.

I think that was the point
..to make the grown-ups realise what kind of impression they are making on the kids and put a mirror in front of them in a cute way so they can take a good hard look. I don't think it was about the people serving the public though. The tongue in cheek way it was done sure made me aware of how the conregation is not an easy to please crowd and how they "see" the people serving the public. It sure must leave an impression on the next generation...and not a good one at that.
