Budgeting in the only State with a deficit

This is the sort of information one might hope to get from the newspaper in one’s state capital.

Conf. Committee Update: They’re in recess until TOMORROW! Granholm and Dillon reneg on budget deal!

Granholm scuttles balanced budget

Dillon abandoned negotiations, wouldn’t answer cell phone

BREAKING: Granholm tells doctors, ‘raise taxes I’ll close schools and kill people’

There is more real information about who, what, where and when in these posts than in days of stories from the Lansing State Journal. The commentary is partisan, but no more so, perhaps less so, than silence. The LSJ could write about Dillon’s absence at a crucial point, instructions to vote “no,” and powered-off cell phone. We’ll see if they do.
