I see where the city’s going to build a fire station out there by the college. Looks to me like all they’re doing is protecting the college. It didn’t go before the voters, but that’s the way the city operates. Don’t ask the taxpayers, just do what you want to do.

I saw in Monday’s paper in the nation and world news about four or five paragraphs devoted to the homeless man in New York City who beat four men to death with a rod and critically injured another. I bet my bottom dollar if the incident had involved a gun, the story would have consumed half of the paper’s front page.
