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.

None of them. They'd whine even louder.

I think that critics who do use that method tend to demonstrate their lack of knowledge on the subject as they speak/write. Besides, critics will rant no matter who is responsible when things don't go their way. For example, when the levies passed, Brian Wilson couldn't blame Carty and Co. so he did the next best thing. He wrote a 400+ word "editorial" in the Toledo Free Press blaming the immature, selfish Toledo voters.

Those who work in public service run the gamut from diamonds to coals; trust me, I know.

We do tend to judge them all by the actions/inactions of their bosses...

I know I'm late to the discussion but I agree, we should at times remember to give kudos and not always critique.

To some, it is far more easy to place blame or fault others than it is to accept personal responsibility or to compliment. What a shame!
