In a dang-near perfect world, you and I would be reading headlines like:

  • Slow day at the ER: Staff take off for Magic Mountain

  • No flu shots needed -- third year in row no cases found worldwide

  • Glut of clean air forces closure of albuterol plant

  • Snooze-days: Chamber of Commerce designates Tuesday afternoons for workplace naps

Whoa!...apparently a gentleman in Brazil reportedly had police finally catch up with him as he owes the equivalent of nearly two million dollars in unpaid traffic fines. The police stopped the 36 year old man and discovered he had been ticketed nearly 1,000 times, the year he bought his current car. He accumulated fines for speeding and running red lights.

Lots of good-deed doers earned honors under a blinding early evening sun outside Arte Americas on Oct. 2.

Judges who helped troubled kids through the juvenile justice system and lawyers and their clients -- some of Fresno's homeless -- who won a landmark settlement vs. Fresno City were among those receiving Champions of Justice awards at an annual Central California Legal Services event.

For me, one honoree encouraged the 175 or so in the audience with a simple synopsis of his life and philosophy.

What I always want: Something thoughtful, different, forward-thinking -- and flat-out doable -- in addressing health-care needs.

What I get: Politicians playing dodge ball and gotcha games as nursing homes, emergency rooms, child-care centers and minimum-wage jobs are engulfed with people in need.

What I found refreshing recently: The October 2008 issue of Wired magazine.
