Budget Bungle

Friday, Feb. 20, 2009 4:02 AM

The prevailing wisdom coming out of the California budget fiasco is that we need to change the law so that a simple majority is sufficient for passage, as opposed to 2/3rds majority.

As if that will fix all of the state's economic woes or improve legislators' performance.

Making it easier to pass a bad budget is simply a bad idea.

Resurrecting the Fairness Doctrine is apparently one of the many boogeymen getting paraded about by yahoos like Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and Sarah Palin.

Because it supposedly means they'd be tossed off the air, or silenced in some insidious way that can only be achieved by evil liberal sociacommufascists. Never mind that the original Fairness Doctrine was applicable to the public airwaves, and did not apply to cable channels.

While Nadya Suleman apparently got the money for the in-vitro fertilization and implantation of embryos from a prior disability claim, should we not also be looking at the professional ethics of a doctor who did so with eight embryos?

This is not normal by any stretch of the imagination. Who is this doctor, and what on earth were they thinking?
