What Can We Trust In?
This cartoon sums up my feelings on the Minnesota bridge collapse. It's a sad world, when we can't trust our governments; local, state, nor federal to show even the most basic sense of responsibility in keeping us safe. Put simply, the people who died in the bridge collapse, were killed because their lives weren't valued a priority when it came time to crunch out a budget. Our elected officials choose to gamble every day with all of our lives, betting time and again that, our bridges, roads etc. will hold up fine for another year or two or twenty. We hear on a weekly basis how scared and worried we should be about the threat of terrorism, but personally I think we have a lot more to fear from the very people we put in charge of keeping us safe.
