Commentary knows he'll catch some flack on this, but has anyone in Austin thought about hiring an outside mediator, getting all the parties together - GOPers and Dems - give up some, win some, lose some - nobody comes home with everything? Everybody has to give up something. Nothing else seems to be working. Then they all can say in unison - "We did it for the school children, we did it for the taxpayer."
Young Gun also had an opinion on news coverage priorities. He cracked on major news organizations for running stories on the "Runaway Bride" - TV news crews and wire service photographers caught her performing community service - she was mowing lawns. Saw the story this morning. Gotta agree with the Young Gun on this, we've heard enough about the "Runaway Bride."
