Same Topic, Different Session


Oh, sorry. It seems transportation will be a hot topic in the next session, with the battle lines drawn between the House and senate over new taxes.

In other words, the arguments are the same, the threats and promises are the same, the reporting is the same and the personalities haven't changed much, either.

Or have they?

A friend of mine says Sen. Marty Williams, one of the solons quoted as very, deeply, utterly committed to higher taxes, may not be running for re-election. Anyone know for sure?

"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

"The graveyards are full of indespensable men" -- Charles de Gaulle
