It really bothers me when I hear stories like this, and encounter people who have no integrity and no interest in doing their jobs well. I don’t know why, but I’m seeing it more and more now, to the point where I think it has become the norm, rather than the exception.
That's how it goes with a devolving society. Bit by bit ... everything goes to pot. Like Franklin said when a woman asked him what sort of government the members of the Constitutional Convention had given them, "A Republic madam. If you can keep it."
