This is a truly marvelous, glorious state, where we can find millions for useless, utterly useless "full-time legislators" and no money for the most vulnerable kids among us.Is this really coming from a regular columnist at the Boston Globe? An irrational, angry rant? (Is the Boston Globe now fighting for the Howie Carr audience? Good luck with that - and the whole integrity thing.)
Deep thought for Mr. Cullen: New Hampshire and Colorado are two states where State Reps are paid little to nothing, compared to the $61k salary in Massachusetts. The Bay State fairs better in everything from education to divorce rates. Are those states really better off treating their elected officials like members of a student council?
