The House of Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves

Our guide in Goa pointed to this building way up on the top of the hill. "That is the house of Ali Baba and the 40 thieves," he said. Then he smiled. "It is the building of the legislature of Goa - we have 40 legislators." People seem to have similar feelings about their legislators everywhere. But, I guess in a democracy, our legislators reflect the people who elect them. If people don't take the time and effort to support honest candidates, they get Ali Babas.
