SOME QUESTIONS ANSWER THEMSELVES: “Seriously, would you rather live 30 days without a politician or 30 days without a sewage treatment facility in your neighborhood? The septic tank pumpers, the garbage collectors, and the electricians are the only folks who hold back the threat of a new Dark Ages. They stand alone along the thin, brown line between anarchy and order. Some of the dirtiest jobs are the most vital. . . . If the world was a fair place, the sump-pumpers and bilge-bailers of this world would make as much as a Congressman. They do more for the public good than both houses of Congress.” Amen.
