When it formed in Tallahassee two and a half years ago, Citizens for Responsible Spending's sole goal was to urge Tallahassee city commissioners to cut expenses before raising property taxes and to shed sunshine on a city budget process that was anything but transparent.
Gary Fineout's story last week on legislative employees moonlighting and the stories that followed it were disturbing to a codger like me.
The first use of nuclear weapons occurred Aug. 6, 1945. The second occurred three days later. That there has not been a third is testimony to the skill and sobriety of 12 presidents and many other people, here and abroad. Today, however, North Korea's nuclear bellicosity coincides with the incontinent tweeting, rhetorical taunts and other evidence of the frivolity and instability of the 13th president of the nuclear era. His almost daily descents from the previous day's unprecedentedly bad behavior are prompting urgent thinking about the constitutional allocation of war responsibilities, and especially about authority to use U.S. nuclear weapons.
