Kudos to special interest groups

The Tennessean reports that a state tax on services was squashed by a “stream” of lobbyists “weighing in on the controversial bill.” Gee, and I thought it was squashed because it was so painfully apparent that the proposal was ludicrous.


Scores of interest-group representatives listened closely, so many, in fact, that the aisles had to be cleared and the doors propped open to abide by the fire marshal’s orders.
