First, thank you for your service in this blog. I do t know anyone who does such a useful and provocative blog. The amount of time, thought and work invested is obvious and appreciated.
Forgive me if this issue has been covered previously, but the mantra “we deserve better” strikes me as being at odds with an overall philosophy of taking responsibility for self governance. Why do we deserve better? From whom do we deserve better? I guess my question is when are we going to get the better that we deserve. Finally, what have we done to deserve anything. I realize I may never get answto my questions, but I think I deserve answers.

Well put, PN … on both points.
We’ll get the better that we deserve when we all participate and educate ourselves in what’s going on behind the scenes. Television and newspapers aren’t going to educate us because they have their own agendas. Use the city and county websites to gain direct information and learn to interpret it on your own.
Thank you for your kind words.
As taxpayers we deserve honesty and accountability from our elected officials. I say “We deserve better”.
I always read this as meaning that we deserve better representation from our locally elected representatives, and for our tax dollars. As for when we might expect it, that would depend on whether or not we can ever get people to the polls in order to elect better representatives. That said, I also agree with your statement of gratitude to brutus, but I think I am ready to pack it in. I grow weary of reading all these opinions from people who cannot or will not identify themselves. I especially grow weary of the attitudes of so many of the commenters here.
Mr. Duncan, I use a psuedonynm because the rules allow it, and I use it as a literary device. If you can guess why I use this one, I will tell you my name. Just having fun.
Ummm Max Higgs, your psuedonynm is hot linked to maxhiggs.wordpress.com
well, macks, my name is Dungan, with a G; not Duncan, with a C; thank you very much.
Says the guy who doesn’t need employment in this town.
You really underestimate how vindictive people can be, if they disagree with you.
For the record, Brutus himself (or herself) is a pseudonym. That’s kind of the point.
