Since the Legislature rubber stamps NRA laws, is it surprising there's no floor debate? From that perspective, the lack of debate speaks volumes about who calls the shots up there. Hopefully, you will write more about your 90 minutes with Bo. What's his relationship with ALEC? Why does he dodge the Scenic Vistas Protection Act? Is he affiliated with Family Action Council? If the goal is providing well-heeled workers, why are they cutting higher ed and pre-K funding? How can you cut the legs out from the ed system and expect a good outcome?

"Over" $160M for 3 miles? Think it's so expensive because it's running counter to the topography, maybe a little? First, we lop off 10M tons of rock from Lookout Mtn. Then, top Cameron Hill to build fill for the Olgiati Bridge. Now, we're going to straighten the thoroughfare, so people can get to their cubicles 5-10 minutes earlier?

No wonder we're "broke." We're stupid.
