Still on the Job, but at Half the Pay
By LOUIS UCHITELLE
MECHANICSVILLE, Va. — The dark blue captain’s hat, with its golden oak-
leaf clusters, sits atop a bookcase in Bryan Lawlor’s home, out of

home. The rules forbid that extra display of authority, now that Mr.
Lawlor has been downgraded to first officer.
I always look for confirmation when exposing people or situations. To expound on the topic “Toledo’s Children,” I have been battling with myself as to whether or not I should release this topic with my opinions however harsh they may be.

As a mother, I have always taught my sons the necessity of living within their means and avoiding accumulating debt. Especially with the onset of the economic recession, I have stressed the importance of trimming down excess expenditures during an unstable economy. But as the government continues to grow its power and become increasingly embedded in our everyday lives, it also continues to inefficiently consume our tax dollars.

In an abbreviated spiral climbing toward the cap, eyes open gradually until the topmost eye pops with an emerald iris the size of a quarter.
