Bells and Whistles
Sunday's society column carried a story about the Peninsula Lions Club honoring police and firefighters. The last time positive comments about our public servants was allowed in the local paper was when the Palo Alto police department was taken over by the girls. Today we're back to questioning these dangerous occupations with a story about worker's compensation claims. Police and firefighters get injured more frequently? Say it ain't so! To this add racial profiling charges against officers and the coverage of officers accused of beating a citizen. I'm beginning to think the Daily might look into response times to newspapers located near firestations.
