Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey continues committing political heresy: telling the voters the plain unvarnished truth. Government since the New Deal in this country has run on the premise of convincing a majority of voters that they can get something for nothing. Those days are coming crashing to an end against a wall of debt. Few things are more powerful in politics than a man or woman who understands that a page has turned and that new times are upon us. Governor Christie understands this and is acting upon it.
Peter Tork of The Monkees has died at age 77. May his soul rest in peace.
