Am I an outlier on this list in my mistrust of public officials (even if we  
might disagree on which officials to trust or mistrust) or do I describe a  
generally-shared perception of where we are right now in our political  culture? 

I can only speak for  myself of course, but Sandy, in my view, is absolutely 
right about distrusting  public officials in contemporary political culture.  
But for me the  epiphany came in the late sixties. (Yes, I did once trust 
public  officials.)
        Do those born in the  sixties have seventies have any lesser reason 
to distrust public  officials?  I can't imagine why not?
