OUR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES
I hate generalizations.
I know quite a number of parents who do NOT expect the schools to do everything for them and their children, and I know a greater number of citizens who do NOT expect the government to do everything for them.
I don't know why I was surprised at such a gross generalization; after all, the Council member who made the statement is a former school administrator who, after retiring, became a "double-dipper". I bet he was glad the school administration (the "government") was there to "do everything" for him by giving him a job instead of giving the job to a younger person.
Yes, it's different when it's oneself to which one refers!
I expect "OUR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES" to be an ongoing topic for the BLOG.
