    Tax Day — Yay!
      Ponder that GE story for a minute: Between 2007-09, GE also laid off 21,000 American workers and closed 20 factories. And we reward that? But don’t blame the corporations, say those leaders who thought a couple wars wouldn’t be too expensive.

    Billions of dollars, partisan bickering and corporate sponsors — making government work.
      A couple of lessons out of Olympia last week: Don’t storm the governor’s office. You’ll be arrested. And don’t lock the doors of the Capitol building, because Senate Majority Leader Lisa Brown — who studied labor history as a graduate student — might get angry and cancel the Senate.

    Your mission, should you choose to accept it: Provide me and the city with some feedback.
      Do you ever feel like Matt Damon or Tom Cruise? Not when they’re playing a blue-collar worker turned math genius or cavorting in some odd Stanley Kubrick movie.

      Quick: Why do we have two big police departments servicing the same area? Stumped? There’s only one answer: Because that’s how we’ve always done it. And in this brutal new economic world (just ask California — or Greece — how tough it’s become), doing the same thing isn’t good enough any more.

    Butch Otter doesn’t get it: The health care status quo is not working.
      President Barack Obama may have won the national health care battle, but Idaho Gov. Butch Otter is still loaded for bear. He’s proud he was the first governor to sign into law a measure that requires the state attorney general to sue the federal government if it tries to make Idahoans buy health insurance.
