The Passing Parade: Cheap Shots from a Drive By Mind

"...difficile est saturam non scribere. Nam quis iniquae tam patiens urbis, tam ferreus, ut teneat se..." " is hard not to write Satire. For who is so tolerant of the unjust City, so steeled, that he can restrain himself... Juvenal, The Satires (1.30-32)

EMERGENCY RESPONSE:The folks in charge of our happy little burg’s 911 emergency response system, or so I am told by those who know, do not own a current map of our city or a complete list of our city’s streets, this lack of what might otherwise be considered a necessity coming after the expenditure of millions of dollars on the system itself and a host of delays in actually implementing it. Given this literal lack of guidance, persons needing emergency services should therefore set their houses on fire immediately after calling 911; the column of smoke will help the paramedics find you.
