Bob Makes Good?

Bob Riley may have garnered a little respect from me. I'm still going to take a 'wait and see' attitude, but, if it's true, and there are no ulterior motives, I may have to reconsider my opinion of him. After running on an education reform platform, Bob had sorely disappointed many by reversing direction and asking the public to pay MORE of their hard earned dollars in taxes to fund schools. Now, shocking many, including myself, he has declared an Education Budget SURPLUS... of over 300 million!!! (This is something John Sophocleus pointed out a couple of years ago, but I digress...) WHERE did the money come from? I hope it came from PORK. However, if it is coming from funds that should have gone to schools, it won't affect me. Education should be privatized, anyway. Bob may be on the right track. For the sake of the State, I hope so.
