    …there seems to be a model of governance from which Illinois and its debt-ridden blue brothers could perhaps take a cue. -TAI

    The cue they will take will be to lie about and denounce the whole thing lest the example be used against them. They will start by pointing out all the ways in which the Texas model is not perfect and therefore nothing to be emulated. Some people are somehow going to be hurt by this show of responsibility. Find someone who stands to lose something because of reforms under consideration and write a human interest story about their misery and loss. Put a name and a human face on the inevitable disruption of reform and call it the result of hate. In the final (media) analysis it’s sure to be a bad bad thing they are considering in TX.
