How does this make sense?

So - the City of Los Angeles would rather lay off library employees than expend a bit of effort on making people pay their parking tickets - or so an accountant has discovered.

And apparently we have $2.53 million dollars lying around to pay to TWO fire captains who just won a civil case!

Oh yeah, and in yet another example of our society's penchant for punishing the non-powerful, Schwarzenegger has ordered that all CA state employees be paid at minimum wage until the State budget is finalized.

It sure would be nice if we could get our priorities straight.

  1. Um, and didn't I recently get a pay raise because I had *just* enough seniority to avoid getting pink-slipped?
