"[T]he Oklahoma Legislature is determined to have smaller government," says frustrated Tulsa school superintendent Keith Ballard. To which one must reply, "Not only the Legislature -- their constituents too!" Interestingly, Mr. Ballard doesn't appear to realize that Oklahoma government spending is at an all-time high and that smaller government has not yet arrived.
For good measure, Mr. Ballard gets in a few licks on school choice and tax cuts, perhaps unaware that those are popular too and that he probably ought to brace for more of them. Somebody keep the Prozac handy!
