From the Columbia Missourian:
I found three different quotes that apply to this week’s column, coming from Samuel Clemens, Yogi Berra and the well-known “Unknown.” I have known Mr. Berra since the 1960s, so my hat is off to him. He famously said, “It’s déjà vu all over again.”
“Unknown” said, “The only time that Congress does good work is when it is out of session.” I am certainly glad the 2011 Missouri session is over, yet my political Spidey-senses are still tingling. Other than passing a budget and overriding Gov. Jay Nixon’s veto of the new federal congressional districts, what has this Republican-dominated session done to create jobs in Missouri or to protect our poor, our ill, our elderly and our children? At best, little. Just like years in the past.
