Brings back memories... I was driving through downstate Illinois in the late
'60s and just happened to see a shadow under a billboard in time to slow

Don't ya just love that? The schools cry out for money, they have to lay
off cops, and these morons pay themselves +$500,000 salaries (to be sure,
I don't know if Bell has had to lay anyone off, but Calif in general is in
real monetary trouble, and one city has lkaid off it's police force and is
'outsourcing' to the Sheriff's dept and the neighboring town's police dept...)
If these guys are Republicans, I'm becoming a Democrat...
