Public trust and public decency


Is it okay to be irritated at a battlefield's administrators when they wait 20 years to to replace a broken history tablet?

How about when they collect outside money to make a replacement tablet - after two decades - and then hold off for a year before re-installing the tablet? So they can make a ceremony for their fund-raising programs?

Can I be irritated that they callously use elementary school students to perform their own core duties?

Should I donate additional money to a federally funded National Park Service that lavishes high salaries on senior staff while schoolkids replace historic tablets?

Public decency is expected of public servants - the NPS should get some.
