Good news from Rhode Island!

Here was a cheery headline:

RI gov to shut down state government for 12 days

“Rhode Island will shut down its state government for 12 days and hopes to trim millions of dollars in funding for local governments under a plan Gov. Don Carcieri outlined Monday to balance a budget hammered by surging unemployment and plummeting tax revenue.”

What a great idea! Perhaps it will catch on in Sacramento, Albany, and other state capitals. Indeed, maybe it will catch on in Washington!

I doubt it, frankly, but one can always hope.
