Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2008 | Another one of Ron Roberts’ annual trips to Asia is just a glaring example of the continuing abuse of a political position by greedy, self-serving politicians. I don’t know why I should let this standard political practice bother me. Maybe it is the fact that as a police supervisor, I was required to discipline any officer accepting a free cup of coffee, while the Mayor and City Manager sat in the private boxes behind home plate during the World Series. I guess that honesty, ethics, principles and morality are just for us little people. Go for all you can get politicians; we little people will be responsible for the important values of life in just trying to live good honorable lives, while all of you just keep fiddling away.
