Rants & Raves - February 14


Tift County has a great school system and nice facilities for the students to learn. However, the BOE is sad to look at. Surrounding counties have nice main offices so Tifton should take note. Not to mention the mess on the inside!
A man with a familiar face was in the arrest records. This man has asked me for money on several occasions even though I don't know him. Now that I have a name to go with the face, I googled it. Good Lord! Why do we arrest criminals repeatedly and then release them to commit similar crimes again? Local judges take note; if they haven't changed on the third or fourth time... they aren't changing!
One of the reasons so many of us don't criticize people in power is we tend to be blinded by the brilliance of their stature. I think the natural reaction is to assume they got there for good reason and if I don't immediately understand their brilliance it’s because I'm stupid, not because they are.
