Coin collecting


I think pretty highly of Atlanta’s mayor, Shirley Franklin, but sometimes I wonder if the entrenched system has unalterable aspects. Now, I discovered, it takes three men, two armed and apparently vigilant, to collect the city’s nickels. The guy on the left never took his eyes, as near as I could tell, off the meter-emptier; so much for what’s going on in the general area (including directions perps might enter the scene from). Is this more Homeland Security dole working for the benefit of all?
