Director Santiago's Credo

Before I close up my notebook with the March 3 discussion item on the value of a civilian police director versus a police chief, let me share this quote from Trenton Police Director Joseph Santiago:

"The only thing that gives politics a bad name is people who practice it poorly."

Wow. If I knew how to do needlepoint, I would put that on a pillow ASAP. It would also make a good refrigerator magnet.

Curiously, it came up in the midst of comments about "transparency" and "accountability."

Let all who would practice politics take heed.
