My Governor, Bob Wise, discussing the need to streamline state government to make it more efficient, during his State of the State Address:
” It’s not a question of if we change. The only issue is how and when. I say now..”
Yogi Berra was spotted weeping openly in the audience.
My other favorite Wise quote from tonight:
Some may say step back — we say move forward.
And you do the hokie pokie…
Governor Wise did have one really interesting proposal which just goes to show how far the internet has come, and again, shows where we are going in the future:

The executive budget, and my legislative proposals are being transferred as I speak to your email accounts. They also being delivered electronically to the press, to state agencies and many citizens — and we’re saving a ton of paper and printing and postage costs in the process.
Good. An outstanding use of technology that no one should be against (now watch the idiots print them out on ther government computers- ruining the whole purpose).
