"I Like Firing People"
Maybe it's the meeting I sat through yesterday with State Park employees, who were working on an Emergency Response Study addressing a small upcoming community event, at which perhaps a few dozen people will eat home-made cookies under a locally famous tree, while listening to a handful of politicians make remarks about a BP-oil-spill-guilt-financed acquisition of whooping crane habitat for the local state park. (The study will detail their plans for a "First Amendment Corral" to be set aside for potential protesters.) ("State Park Unfair to Non-Whooping Crane Species.") Or maybe it's persistent recent reports of a Fish & Wildlife officer who's suddenly made it his life's work to harass locals who drive completely unregulated golf carts on our tiny, untrafficked, low-speed streets in this unincorporated rural coastal community. Maybe it's the upcoming presidential debates. For whatever reason, I got a kick out of this Wizbang post: "If You Work for the Government, You Deserve to Be Fired." He's not a true firebreather, of course; he makes an exception for teachers and first responders.
