Fox hunting. Why is that fun? I don't get it. The hounds do all the work. Why do they need you?
As he pursues his national "explorations" the governor is sure to be asked about this failure to follow through. And if he really wanted to have bragging rights about what has happened in New Jersey, he clearly missed his best chance by failing to fight for true budget reform.
Mississippi has proved to us all that austerity, or the political ideology of "government living within its means," is a farce. Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant and the GOP-led legislature illustrated that perfectly in two ways.
It took the stage version of Disney's The Little Mermaid quite a while to finally find its sea legs. When the original Broadway production opened at the Lunt-Fontanne Theater back in January of 2008, the critics were not kind.
