Public Service: Laudable
All too often, I hear and read comments from people who blast the men in women who are in the public service, both elected and appointed public service. Many times, the critics make their negative commentary in a burning tirade painting all public service persons with one broad tar-coated brush based on limited personal information, limited personal experience, and limited personal interaction making generalized, far-sweeping condemnations of hard-working men and women who give of themselves to serve the public with scant rewards and with their lives as open as if they lived in a fishbowl for all to see. I wonder how many of the critics would or could tolerate the very same scrutiny they cast upon those who are in our civil service.
