    You can bad mouth the governor (I do!) and the state all you want, but those are two lessons I learned from my parents by the time I was 10; 1) Don't spend money you don't have, 2) Save a nice chunk of what you make for a day you can't see today.

    Now, does that forced balancing of the book mean that there will be a reduction in services... YES! Will it impact some more than others....YES again! Brings up a 3rd lesson I learned awfully early in my years....Life Ain't Fair.

    We have a rainy day fund here in South Dakota. The legislature has yet to spend a penny of it. They have instead relied on cutting, the cuts have been deep. Even our Republican governor came out and said, paraphrasing - we saved that money for a rainy day. Well, it's raining outside. He was pretty frustrated with some of the cutting.

    Same thing may happen here....but with the "expert estimate" being so far off, my guess is we'll see half that $10B used over the next two years.

    As for the thoughts of running me out of here....I'm pretty tolerant of differing opinions, as I'm somewhat of a political paradox myself. Not many folks out there share my opinions on abortion and capital punishment. Both parties have it wrong.
