There's nothing like straitened circumstances to help us realize what our true priorities are. The City of Portland is trying to build sports arenas for soccer and baseball. Schools are having to decide whether to cut teachers or sports. Even the feds, with the best of stated intentions, have let the earmarks flow and the bankers cavort. The Pols are correct in one thing. Until we, the people, gain confidence in the enterprise, we will not get out of this vale of difficulty.
