Budget battles bring out the best in Americans, always passionate for proper resources from their local and state governments but always mindful of property and income taxes. This year is more heated, of course, because, well, it's this year.
But Wisconsin does take the cake. Very interesting stuff over there, if looking at the strategies (RUN!, very Dillengeresque) and the stakes (Huge!).
Too bad places like Libya and Egypt don't have budget battles, where this sort of disagreement could be handled, instead waiting decades for their parties to end and for the streets to replace orderly change.
