This is the title of my NMI column that ran yesterday. Normally it runs on Tuesdays, but they ran it early. I wanted to leave the Allen Weh interview as the top story on Monday, so I did not link to the column until today.
Coincidentally, a commenter on the Weh interview linked to his blog post casting doubt on the standard Republican platform of lower taxes and smaller government:
Look, if you want less government and lower taxes, it means you’re not going to work at solving the DWI problem and the low academic achievement in the public schools. And all the other problems that people expect government to solve.
Later this week, I’m packing up all the kids and heading for a short vacation with two of my best girlfriends and their children, so you may be reading less politics and more posts like this and this. Or you may not be reading anything at all, if I can’t get the wireless internet to work or if I spend too much time playing Risk with the kids.
