The Albuquerque Journal just keeps trying to put public employees in the crosshairs of everything that is wrong in our lives. Today their weepy front page columnist drove the last nails into the public servant careers of two employees by celebrating their departure after they made an error in judgement. Good people I am sure, but no mistakes can be made in the Journal's estimation if you are a person that works for the public. Why, they are just vampires aren't they?
Do you thing the editors could at least do one story on a dedicated government employee a month? Just throw out a bone? Given the number of government employees around the area, including ones on contracts, it might be a good idea.
On another issue of vitriol the Journal finally.....finally, printed a story on the scientist who got wide coverage for debunking global warming changing his mind and saying he was wrong after studying the data he attacked. This story came out last week and was somewhat glossed over by everyone and ignored by our hometown paper. I guess it just became to obvious that the story had to be done. I mean they have to keep up appearances don't they?
Waking up to the Journal every morning is good for me. It gets my blood moving quickly! I owe them thanks for that.
