... I can't imagine what he's talking about. ... The thought that cutting Walsh's planned salary will quell the uproar
is almost laughable. The damage is already done. Even more laughable is the thought that the permanent bureaucracy hasn't already figured out
how to get around wage-freeze demands. ... At least the governor admits, sort of, that he was wrong. There's a part of me who thinks he really doesn't like being Duke II or Duke III
, something the Democratic Legislature is demanding from him as the price for cooperation.
