Looking at recent events that have occurred in the past few weeks I am reminded of a famous quote of Ronald Reagan’s: “When you can’t make them see the light, make them feel the heat.” Involvement in your local government is truly paramount to reminding elected officials of what you would like to see happen in our community, especially when it comes to the use of your tax dollars.
It’s been quite a few years since I’ve seen a movie without laughter of any sort--not a single one-liner, or even the slightest attempt towards invoking a harmless giggle. “Halloween” and the other horror films pride themselves on the fine art of laughter to relax unsuspecting viewers--all before an axe, knife or chainsaw cut to the morbid plot. Even 1972’s epic backwoods suspense thriller “Deliverance” tossed out some jokes between arrow shots from Burt Reynolds’ recurve bow. I’d probably have to go back to Steven Spielberg’s 1971 road rage, made-for-TV movie titled “Duel” to discover such a humorless film production as “Foxcatcher”.

Here’s your first lesson in government for the year. No, we’re not going over the hundred questions on the new high school civics test. We’re taking a look at what we’ve learned about government and politics from our new Governor Doug Ducey. Spoiler alert: the lesson will not be uplifting. Our new Superintendent of Public Instruction Diane Douglas might even say it’s too cynical to be taught to elementary school children. But we can take it. We’re all adults here.
