Satire Over a Cliff

Craig Cantoni (see link below) recently wrote:

"You might think this is a leap of logic, but the installation of new digital cameras and recorders costing $1,400 apiece on 85 Scottsdale Unified School District buses is a symbol of social decay and a harbinger of the nation's eventual demise ("Schools upgrade cameras on buses," Scottsdale Republic, March 2). "

Leap of logic?!


Well, lemming logic, maybe.

So you see, it's not the deficits, which have saddled every man, woman, and child in the U.S with $30K of debt each.

It's not the way the Bush administration has chiselled out whole sections of the Bill of Rights and tossed the rubble into the cold and dirty Potomac.

It's not the failure of our government to yet fully investigate the 9/11 attacks and explain the odd implosion of WTC 7.

It's not the rampant corruption of campaign financing, not the outing of CIA agents, not the immigration issue, not our failure to fund healthcare for the neediest among our fellow countrymen, not the dismal failure of a war in Iraq, nor is it global warming.

It's our misguided devotion to school bus safety that is tearing at the fabric of society.

If Dave Barry were to take over writing columns for Craig Cantoni, yet maintaining his byline, I suspect many people would not see any difference.
