From the Your Tax Dollars at Work department

One of the local governments has had a bit of a personnel problem. Basically the city hired a a crackhead as the public works director. When he got busted, they fired him.

Now the city council wants to put in random drug testing on all city employees. The cooler heads of the city attorney advised them that doing so would be violating at least one of the amendments to the constitution, so now they're considering doing them on new employees.

Now they're talking about starting to do background checks on new employees. That's funny, I can't apply to work at McDonalds without giving permission for a background check, and the local government isn't doing it routinely?

Things that make your head hurt on a Friday morning.
