    This part of  Mark's diary here is really what is happening in America today:

    At one point in my life public service was considered a noble profession

    Truth is, public service is THE noble profession.  I mean, c'mon....teachers, cops, firefighters, EMT's ?  What's NOT noble in those professions, all of which are public service.

    If public servants all around the country get to the point that they have gotten to in Wisconsin (at least what it appears has happened in Wisconsin), local, county and state governments will suffer as will the very people these public service employees served.  

    We're on a troubling path in this country.  This is just the tip of the iceberg, I think.
