busting idiotic budget cliches in Elkhart

My little bloggy soapbox has been directed at education idiocy the past week or so, but there's something very different going on in Elkhart. It appears that Mayor Dick Moore made crime a priority for his administration. The city government funded more squad cars, cameras, computers, and police officers, and as a result are seeing tangible improvements in their crime numbers and less tangible, but no less real or important, improvement in citizens' feeling of safety.

In other words, the mayor "threw money at the problem," and it's working.
