An editorial by Mel Rothenburger.
WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL about the wood splitter?
Doesn’t every Legislature need one? You never know when a tree is going to fall down on the Legislative grounds.
And where did you think they would park it? At the clerk’s house, of course, where it would have to be tested to make sure it’s in good working order.
Seriously, though, nothing gets taxpayers madder than what we like to call the “culture of entitlement,” whether it involves politicians or bureaucrats.
