Talk is cheap. Public services are not.
Bingo.

Sorry, didn't mean to offend, it was a bit of a rant on my part. I guess I am angry because every time this happens its the same. I saw it happen with the shooting in my school district. Nothing really changed as a result of it. Nobody wants to admit the problems are real and they exist and they need to be dealt with. Why? Because it costs money to do it, and the politicians are more concerned with preserving their own cushy positions and expense accounts, rather than risk not getting reelected by making an unpopular decision that would benefit the greater good.
