I think we found an extra First Responder...

As the frenzy over fiscal crisis "Dennis" reaches its peak, we may have found evidence of just a teeny, tiny speck of surplus in the machinery of government.

Charge dropped against 10-year-old
School officials searched the boy’s backpack the following day, found the toy gun and called police.
To each school official who voted to call the police... thank you.
To the 911 operator who didn't hang up at the words "... toy gun"... thank you, too.
To the two squad cars that rolled to reports of a "2319" (young miscreant with plastic weapon)... thank you.

To the fourteeen members of the Commonwealth’s Attorney office who wrestled with this decision... thank you.
