One of R-Cubed’s correspondents reports that Tim Bee told some people at a meeting of educational administrators yesterday that if he and Marsha Arzberger were in charge, this whole budget situation would be resolved.
Well…that’s very nice. Frankly, if any individual legislator were in charge, the budget situation would be resolved. Even if if was this guy. But, that ain’t the way it works, is it?
