Day 37 (Tuesday, April 20, 2010): With only four days remaining in this year's session, we get down to business today by passing the amended FY 2010 budget that runs through June 30 of this year. The historic drop in state revenue is evident here as the FY 2010 budget has been reduced to 2004 and 2005 levels as revenues have fallen $1.6 billion since the original 2010 budget was passed last April. Totaling $17.7 billion, the average agency has been cut 18 percent while vital services such as Medicaid and Education have been cut only 9 ...

Dads, don't high-five your kids

Sometimes, seemingly little things are of great import. I was reminded of this axiom recently during a stint as a guest on Dennis Prager's syndicated radio program.

Actually, it looked like he had a sunburn on top of a sunburn - large areas of skin across his back, shoulders and arms were peeling and revealing angry, bright red splotches. I looked for an accompanying adult but couldn't find one. I'm not sure what I would have said, but I felt I needed to say something to that neglectful ...
