The Brookings Institution just hosted a conference to discuss problems with the Pennsylvania legislature. One idea was to create a big cash prize for "outstanding" legislating.
John Baer, columnist with the Philadelphia Daily News, says, "I'd love to be on the selection committee."
And if you're thinking, how sad it is to pay elected officials to be good, remember that it would be foundation funds, not yours; and that you're paying them now (the most expensive legislature in America) to be bad.
Pretty cynical stuff. But then, Pennsylvania is now a place where they're counting the legislative indictments by the dozen.
