Holy Crap! Did he EAT $787,637 a year?

The spectacle of corrupt government officials* arresting other corrupt government officials for being too publicly corrupt is…amusing, if meaningless.

Hey, here’s a joke! What do you call 1000 tax-eaters at the bottom of the ocean?

*Yeah, I know. Report me to the Department of Redundancy Department.

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    Well, in Chaucer’s day it was thought that people looked like what they are or were.

    Maybe they knew more than we figured, eh?

    This is an interesting case to me for two reasons – primarily because the population in Bell is heavily hispanic. I have to wonder why _no one_ seemed to have been aware of the ridiculous salaries, or why something wasn’t done about it. People seemed really angry when they learned about it – so why didn’t they do something earlier? Probably – they didn’t know. What rules/laws make the information unavailable? Why didn’t the local newspapers print it? Usually a reporter attends all city council meetings – but maybe Bell was too small and escaped notice. If there are rules/laws that allow the council to hide the info – that needs to be changed.
    The other factor may lie in the hispanic population. I wonder what percentage is legal and _can_ vote, and what percentage is just unaware that _their_ action is a part of keeping government straight. Of course, with the latter, at least they have the excuse that they come from Mexico where they really don’t have much influence – those of us who have been citizens all our lives don’t have that excuse when it comes to our government!

    Guess they never heard of “Recalls”…

To the stake with the heretic!
