Everyone's a little bit....libertarian

But after Katrina, the trend reversed and the skeptics became a majority, with 56 percent viewing government as mostly wasteful.

That's from John Tierney today. All you ProQuesters can find it here. The whole thing is good, better than that excerpt.

You'll also notice that I now have to use ProQuest to read the NYT columnists, since they are jerks and it's a paid subscription now. In (perhaps related) news, the Wall Street Journal is no longer subscription. Oh the times they are a-changin'....

    The only good part of this post is the Dylan. Well, and I'm ambivalent about the WSJ v. NYT stuff. I don't think that poll result shows much of anything, because the question's too vague to tell whether people think government is by nature wasteful or just that right now this particular government is wasteful (yes).
