Two Tuesday Morning Comments

To the New York Times:

The world has not ended. The bill as voted on, much improved from the original proposal, was still flawed, perhaps at its root. Make it better, or replace it with something better.

— Leo Wong, Albany

Ideology — left and right — defeated this bill, but something like it will eventually pass, or — miracle of miracles — events will show it to have been unnecessary. Let's stop the house on fire metaphor. If we keep the house, let's say it seemed about to collapse. The bill was to prop it up. This morning it still has not fallen. No time for recriminations. Once again, Senator McCain has it wrong, and Senator Obama has it right.

— Leo Wong, Albany
