I went for a ride this Sunday and ended up downtown for a while.
City of El Paso department of transportation workers were installing new traffic lights around San Jacinto Plaza.
What I saw was pleasing.
There were about 16 city workers there that day.
I never saw a single one of them idle. They worked as a well orchestrated team with each one seeming to know what his part was and even watching the others to see if someone needed help with a heavy or awkward device.
They spoke with each other in English.
Adjacent to the project was our decimated plaza. There was no one person working on that.
I tip my hat to the department of transportation.
