    Attn readers: Never use the word "Public Service/ Public Servant". There is no such thing. All tose labeled persons are well rewarded. Save the PS/PS label for all those who VOLUNTEER to help mankind. Politicians are at the other end of the spectrum which culminates in a trough.

    Can a candidate wage a successful campaign without pouring in some of their own cash?
    It happens every election cycle! There is no hope for America when you can buy a not-guilty verdict (OJ) or an Election (Whitman apparently) even though you have done nothing to earn the mantle of public servant or Good Citizen. More Money, More Money, More Money!!

    If you want to vote right, elect someone with a record of honest public service - there are some of them out there.
