Sensational headlines along with their stories sell.

An editorial, a headline, and a news story are three different things. Editorials, as stated in the original post of yours that I quoted, do not sell newspapers. As you have subsequently stated, headlines and news stories do.

Funny how in "good times" nobody cared about lowly cops, fireman and teachers! Wah wah wah, it's all the civil servants fault now!

Funny, but for someone who makes as much money as a 10 year cop, you seem to have an awful lot of time on your hands to post in these threads ... day after day after day, hour after hour after hour. And all of your posts saying the same thing. Tell me how I can get a job like yours.
Couldn't have said it better! You think for a top tier college graduate you'd have an extremely challenging, time-consuming, and progressive job. But then again, the they said that being a retail worker on Long Island is as dangerous as a cop, meaning they probably think that most of Long Island has the same crime problems as inner-city Detroit . I'm starting to sense troll.

Never once have I heard my friends or family on Long Island complain about cops and teachers salaries (and not one of them are any kind of civil service worker here). Probably because they have better things to do like going out and enjoying life and caring about bigger issues going on in the world instead of constantly complaining on CD boards.

Thread closed for mod review. I really did try to keep this open, but very few people cooperated.

People may not recall what you said to them, but they will always remember how you made them feel .
