The Public Sector Versus the Private Sector: The New Civil War

More than 150 years ago our nation was ravaged by the battle between the North and the South. Ceremonies commemorating the American Civil War are being planned in many parts of our nation. This is good and proper. We need to look back, pause, and ponder...


Let me suggest to you an approach to your part in the coming, new civil war. Keep your head down, your powder dry, and your eyes on the prize which seems best to suit your family, your community, your fire department and you. Do what you can within the areas over which you have some little bit of control. Oh, and let me suggest that each of us utter a prayer for a shower of compromise to begin raining down on our elected leaders at every level. Take care and stay safe.
