Good Call by the Guv

Last Thursday we said the State Legislature wouldn't vote Governor Paterson authority to cut spending unilaterally, so he should just up and do it:

Everyone, including the State's Attorney General, said you couldn't constitutionally appoint a Lieutenant Governor. But you did it anyway. And the Court of Appeals said, "OK."
Now, according to James Lawrence, editorial page editor of the Democrat and Chronicle, writing in the newspaper's editorial blog, the Governor told Mr. Lawrence yesterday that he's going to do just that.

Good for him, to do it, and lucky for us that he will. Let the cuts to bloated spending on education employees and Medicaid begin!
