The PNJ today editorially applauds the state's attorney's criminal investigation of Escambia county commissioners. Along the way, it unintentionally reveals the depths to which public expectations about Escambia county government have sunk.

Speaking of the investigation's eventual denouement the editorial states, "If nothing else it would be bracing for county residents to get a clearer understanding if something is wrong down there, or if it is simply political incompetence."

So, finding mere 'political incompetence' among Escambia County commissioners would not be evidence of 'something wrong down there'? Nope. That's just standard operating procedure.
