It is so unfair

[HT: Greg Mankiw] From P.J. O'Rourke a quote:
I have a 10 year old at home, and she is always saying, “That’s not fair.” When she says that, I say, “Honey, you’re cute; that’s not fair. Your family is pretty well off; that’s not fair. You were born in America; that’s not fair. Honey, you had better pray to God that things don’t start getting fair for you.”
Like Greg, I have had pretty similar conversations although except for the America bit. That said, it is so unfair that we can't buy an official iPhone here in Australia.
