"Living in an alternate universe"

The Brownsville Area School District recently voted to give administrators some retirement benefits that no private sector would even consider--Nine years of free healthcare insurance for retiring early.

As The Herald Standard correctly notes:

"The only place such economic frivolity continues to exist is in the public sector, where such spending is attached like a kite string to taxpayer wallets. It would be easier to find a unicorn mating with a Dodo bird on the Browsville Wharf than to find a private employer in Fayette County offering a deal like this, one so sweet it could practically rotten your teeth on impact."
