Readers are referred to a Local View column published today, April 13, 2012, in the Lincoln Journal-Star that was co-written by Shelli and me. In the article, we argue that Governor Heineman should use the opportunity presented by his veto of LB599 to draw a line against the Unicameral’s profligate spending. I recommend that readers also peruse the comment thread regarding the article where literally anybody might say anything about any issue — or one of the other commenters — at any time, regardless of the ostensible topic of the thread.
I don’t know about Shelli, but I feel just like Norma Desmond today.
A note from Shelli: Well, on this one, I have to admit knowing more about Linda’s sense of humor than who Norma Desmond was. I was familiar with the phrase, “I’m ready for my close up, Mr. DeMille”, however. Happy to discover the source of the phrase and another film not yet seen. Oh, and also to discover more behind a hilarious Carol Burnett character. If you’re not familiar with any one of these references, know this – Linda is poking good fun at our “illustrious” joint appearance in the local paper.
Oh, and if this is your first opportunity to look into the subject of LB599, I recommend some of our recent articles, listed below.
THIS LIST includes the above and additional past articles dating back to 2010
