The lede from a Hartford Courant story this morning.
After disagreeing for nearly six months, Republican Gov. M. Jodi Rell and the legislature finally agreed Friday on the size of the state’s projected budget deficit for the next two years
Great news, except that it’s about seven months overdue, especially considering that the new fiscal year started four weeks ago and local communities have had to finalize their budgets in the Spring. Meanwhile, Rome burns.
This would be funny if it wasn’t so pathetic. No heros (or leaders) in this saga.
