The week has been a wild one to be certain, and the hits keep coming - politically, at least. So, let's review, shall we?
Judge Smudge: You're not going to get an argument from this little gray duck that the judicial system is a mess in Oklahoma - nor will you get an argument that political corruption and cronyism is rampant. But I must admit that even this story shocked me. A high profile judge has been getting paid fraudulently for children allegedly under her care. It's like something from a Lifetime movie, but it's true. This is the same judge who stepped down from the Ersland case after prosecutors accused her of misconduct. Apparently, they had no idea just how much. Read the Oklahoman story here.
At the end of the day, there are those of us to take a step back, look around and wonder whether or not the "system" as we know it can ever be repaired. We make headway, then we lose ground. Perhaps it is just the fight itself, the struggle internally and externally that keeps us going, striving and desiring more from our existence. Politics is a good place to vent because it's "safe" in many ways. We expect the political process to be flawed and our expectations are often fulfilled with little effort and it feels good to let loose on the political establishment and to be honest, the establishment makes it bloody easy, doesn't it?
