At least the governor supports education. He also just found money for summer jobs for minority kids.

This is the inevitable result when local government sells its "soul" to state and federal government with the expectation of "free money".

Wake up folks! It was your money to begin with. The "shell game" is in the assumption that we will get more than we pay for. The reality is that we will always get less...... or nothing. It will continue to be this way until we get off our dependency addiction to all levels of government.
