It is always interesting to observe the ''FOIL EFFECT'' at work. Mayors propose. Councils posture and obfuscate. Each vent over matters of which 60-70 per cent are beyond their control. THUS, each reinforces the illusion of governance.

SCCAP and WIB should be funded to offer Civil Service test preparation courses. OTDA should screen all applicants for interests and aptitudes. Interests and aptitudes should be matched with Civil Service job descriptions and test qualifications. Vet. Reps should follow the same process.

Must also remember the sub-strata of forgotten 30-45yr old white non Regent's Diploma HS graduates. These folks are a hidden minority unto themselves.

Did Quandt show up in a suit and tie too. The ladies pictured in their finery, should've donned white suits. If you choose to be seen participating at an event hyped to perform physical effort, dress the part. No matter your true intentions, or, comfort levels, your choice of clothing belies your true involvement.

This is worse than Junior League matrons gagging at the sight of disabled kids at Pleasant Valley.

Roll up your sleeves. Take off your necklaces. Show some respect and at least act the part.
