Southern Beale is terrific--she tends to cut through a fair amount of the crap mid-Southern pols seem to be prone to. I feature her a lot.

'Course, I feature you more, but that has to do with your reportage on North Jersey/NY Metropolitan.

She said what I've though all along. This nonsense about how government "ought to be run like a business" is all bullshit. As she said, they do different things.

G.B. Shaw said one of the things a society needs to do is to figure out how to take care of those who can't take care of themselves. That's one of the functions of a government--which people seem to forget. Obviously, this is not something a business ever bothers itself about.

But people in this country have bought the Kool-Aid that businesspeople are "really smart" because they make a lot of money, and that qualifies them to run a government. Never mind what a wonderful job "business"has done on the economy in the last two years...

This all irks me because out here we have Meg Whitman, the E-Bay Queen, running for Gov. And if she wins she'll give us.....lower taxes and less regulation.

Hmmm..haven't we seen that movie before? Isn't that how we got here in the first place?
