MORNING HEADLINES: A drunken anarchist's wet dream

Posted on Tue, Apr 5, 2011 at 8:10 AM

Bazillons of cuts! — The Washington state House released its budget yesterday, proposing $4.4 billion in cuts and privatizing liquor sales. Less government, more liquor: A drunken anarchist's wet dream. (KREM)

One mid-sized city seeking cheap yet ethical contractor — The Spokane City Council approved new rules for its contractors last night. Now, instead of simply being the lowest bidder, contractors must show they are in compliance with safety, environmental, labor and other rules. Is that George McGrath I hear grumbling from the fifth row? (SR) 

Idahoans do ride bikes! — The Post Falls City COuncil will make some decisions this evening concerning its planned $725,000 bike trail. I know. Who knew they allowed bikes in Idaho? (CDA Press) 

Shut it down! No, wait, don't! — Obama and the GOP continue to threaten/dare each other to do the same thing: shut down the government. Quit being teases, you guys, and seal the deal already! We know you love each other. (Daily Beast)
