Police state

Friday night on the west side of Tallahassee. Cool autumn temps. Respite from the work week.

When pigs fly.

All-Seeing-Eye in the sky. Copper chopper. RotoDeputy. I'm caught in the web of student and minority profiling. 

Essential rhetorical device: How long would these things last if flown over the nice part of town?

My inner civil libertarian is appalled, of course. A very close second, however, is the ire of my outer Joe Taxpayer. I do not wish to hear the plaints in the coming round of flat-to-slashed budgeting when this money-burning idiocy goes on.

Pardon me while I go take my Lipitor.
