Governor - 1; Teachers Unions - 0

Unfortunately, we're talking about New Jersey's Governor, not New York's.   But the story encourages the possibility, even in New York, of ... hope and change!

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie urged voters in his state to defeat school budgets if teachers in their schools, or their school boards -- so often a captive interest of the teachers' union -- did not agree to one-year wage freezes.   Yesterday, New Jersey voters heeded their Guv's call and defeated 54% of school budgets across the state.   Normally, N.J. voters approve 70% or more of school budgets.
