Public servants not lazy
The April 26 cartoon depicting air traffic controllers sleeping on the job published in The News & Observeris beneath contempt.
This representation reinforces the idea that public servants are lazy and therefore unnecessary. Apparently the air traffic controllers are needed because Congress rushed a bill through so that members of Congress would not be inconvenienced during their rush home to enjoy their recess.
I suppose the “artist’s” depiction also applies to fire and rescue workers, police, teachers and other public servants. Demonizing these people serves no purpose except to fire up right wing lunatics.
