The mayor wants to build downtown. The school system wants up to $1 billion. The General Assembly is in session, and all-day kindergarten for more than $100 million a year is just the start of its plans. At times like these, government spending feels like water in my basement that's already at the top stair. And I've had to give up on finding somebody that actuallly wants to bail out the water. My choices these days are somebody who wants to add to it a cup at a time or somebody who wants to add to it a gallon at a time.
