Jack has hit the nail on the head with this essay. Gamesmanship has always been part of politics, but statemanship was present, too. The gamesmanship was a means to an end. Now the gamesmanship *is* the end. It's all about winning or losing, and not about true governance. Sadly, a large percentage of voters seems to have succumbed to this viewpoint, as well.

A copy of this essay should go out to every politician in the State...and in the country, for that matter. Too bad it won't fit on a bumper sticker. I'd order a few!

Thank you, Jack (and Mr. Milliken and Mr. Kelley, too, both of whom I've long admired).
