I was at the coffee shop when I overheard The Golden Girls having a rather enthusiastic discussion.
GG 1: Oh I just hate when our city uses public tax dollars for unecessary things. Have you seen the new flowers they planted downtown?
GG 2: And those new red light cameras they set up at the intersection. Those cameras were supposed to pay for themselves when red light runners pay the fine. But since the city put them up, people stopped running red lights! Ridiculous!
Oh my. God forbid the government spend money on a safety device that ACTUALLY WORKS! So GG 2 would rather that people run red lights at the risk of endangering the public and pay $50 than not have people run red lights at all.
I wonder if she would feel the same way if she got hit while she was walking across the street to bingo (I was going to say Sunday service but wishing for people to get hit by cars on the way to church is just too mean, even for me).
