A Budget Deal This Week?

Jeff Schapiro will be so disappointed:

The prospects "are looking pretty good," said Del. Vincent F. Callahan Jr., R-Fairfax, chairman of the House Appropriations Committee.

"We hope to finish up" tonight or perhaps tomorrow.

If a deal is made soon, the full General Assembly could sign off and send to the governor a budget by the end of this week or the beginning of next week.

One consolation for Jeff: with the budget out of the way (for now, at least), it will give him a lot more time to hurl poison pens at one of his favorite targets, George Allen.

Oh happy day.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man

"Oh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys. Nature started the fight for survival and now she wants to quit because she's losing. Well I say, hard cheese!" -- Montgomery Burns
