Due to the lack of citations during the 2009-2019 red light camera era, the City of Richardson has been forced to cut back immensely in their slush fund budget. Early on projections that it would increase such funds were straight up whack. Due to this drop in the city budget all slushy parties for city official are cancelled until further notice. (Ok, so I know a slush fund actually refers to a nautical grease slush and not slushie's-I wikipedia'd it-but still, I like to picture it going towards slushy parties. Murph's favorite flavor is grape in this fantasy by the way, and he always spills a little on his tie.) Either way, this frivolous safety cannot continue. That being said, mark your calendars, 10 years and two months from today the COR will have a boatload of scrap metal for one lucky truck owner to round-up....and then in the days following there will probably be much more scrap at the neighborhood impound.

Not only am I FOR red light cameras, and FOR extending the contract 10 years, I am also FOR adding more cameras to every intersection in the city. As a member of the Extreme Christian Right I was being fed 'Mark of the Beast/End Times' propaganda in the cradle you guys. I am a VERY paranoid individual when it comes to people implanting microchips into my dog, led alone ME! And yet, I still do not feel the least bit violated by these cameras. I assume I'm being watched when I try on jeans at the Gap, heck, I assume I'm being watched when I shower in the privacy of my own home. And to Big Brother, I only offer my condolences. I don't even wanna look at that mess, so if you do, more power to ya. If it saves lives in the process, than way more power to you!
