A Quick One
I don't have time, as it's late, to cover this one more than cursorily, but it should be said that I'm actually heartened by this story in today's Commercial Appeal.
In his first Cabinet meeting, new Governor Phil Bredesen has actually told his departments to find cuts, of between 2.5 and 5 percent! Hopefully, he'll follow through with them.
I still doubt our new Governor--he is a Democrat, after all, and that's something to fear--but I'm slightly less skeptical than I was before. Here's hoping this isn't a feint before the hammer of tax increases falls.
