As one that often blogs about wrongs in our society and dysfunction in our governments, don’t think I haven’t noticed the large numbers of announcements of impending retirements among the ranks of our most influential national leaders – young and old alike. Having been ‘around the government block’ to some extent, I am well versed towards accessing any real and under-lying situation, or at least determining the likely circumstances behind official statements and press releases. As such: To whomever may have likely ‘inspired’ those announced, impending, and no doubt ‘well-deserved’ retirements, I’m fairly confident the nation owes you a debt of gratitude – if not more.
Thanks again to any unnamed and unknown individuals who may stand for ethics and Law over political party lines – should you be out there.

Afterthought (3/6/2010): Of course I could be wrong and all the concurrent and planned retirements by government officials could be a result of these elected officials becoming disgusted with the realities of the current political system and landscape. Then again, for any number of reasons, such an agreement of disenfranchisement is not very likely, because it’s unlikely that even this number of nationally elected officials could agree to agree on anything.
