      Really? Ok, sure. Is this supposed to psych me out or something? This hype? Emotionally this does nothing for me except agitate a little because I know what’s going on and I see it all the time. Is this supposed to give me a false sense of security? After seeing news stories about child abductions, people may judge that the likelihood of this event is greater. Media coverage can help fuel a person’s example bias with widespread and extensive coverage of unusual events, such as homicide or airline accidents, and less coverage of more routine, less sensational events, such as common diseases or car accidents. For example, when asked to rate the probability of a variety of causes of death, people tend to rate “newsworthy” events as more likely because they can more readily recall an example from memory. Moreover, unusual and vivid events like homicides, shark attacks, or lightning are more often reported in mass media than common and un-sensational causes of death like common diseases….MIND GAMES.

    You know you guys (DPW) are under the slack supervision of barely outta high school graduates right? The driver’s who some are also GED grads are just following orders from the top. Their knuckleheads follow orders from the top as well and so on. This is just another PUNCH IN THA FACE to the hard working tax payers of Milwaukee, who get NOTHING in return except bills, bills and bills. Gotta crack in your sidewalk that’s public–YOU’RE PAYING FOR IT, got a burnt out street light? SORRY, we’re putting in LED STREET lights around District 1. Need a crosswalk? Sorry, some, Alderwomen IGNORE YOU for MONTHS……until you catch them deleting an email you sent them WITHOUT being read!!!! These type of people see how F’N LAZY they can be compared to how much money they can make doing almost nothing. Seems like DPW is run by Uncle Eddie:

    Mind Games:
    The affect heuristic is a heuristic, a mental shortcut that allows people to make decisions and solve problems quickly and efficiently, in which current emotion—fear, pleasure, surprise, etc.—influences decisions. In other words, it is a type of heuristic in which emotional response, or “affect” in psychological terms, plays a lead role. It is a subconscious process that shortens the decision-making process and allows people to function without having to complete an extensive search for information. It is shorter in duration than a mood, occurring rapidly and involuntarily in response to a stimulus. Reading the words “lung cancer” usually generates an affect of dread, while reading the words “mother’s love” usually generates a feeling of affection and comfort. The affect heuristic is typically used while judging the risks and benefits of something, depending on the positive or negative feelings that people associate with a stimulus.
