The difference between 'public rulers' and public servants
Legendary Baltimore radio talk show host Ron Smith referred to our politicians as “public rulers.” He refused to use their preferred term “public servants” because they rarely if ever act as servants, and if they did, it was most certainly not in the public’s interests. Smith was keenly aware that our politicians, national, state and local were a ruling class that invariably thinks they know better than the public they ostensibly serve.
