    Changing the tone in Washington? Transparency?

    Kent,
    I laughed @ your comment about the 7 public union workers, and then I remembered a couple of weeks ago. We had a bad wind storm here in MTW. After the home owners gathered up the debris, they placed the stuff @ the curb. A couple of days later here comes the City crew/s to clean up the pile/s: 1 Front End loader (Est. Value--$250,000.00),2 Quad axle dump trucks (est. Value --$ 150,000.00 ea) and 3 workers. I believe that equals a total of 6 workers. Six workers plus $500,000.00 (worth of equipt.) to pike up a pickup trucks worth of branches.
