Die-hard optimism

Something is to be said for experience. Well, maybe not for

long-term lawmakers who will undermine the interests of the people by spreading

blatant falsehoods that serve no other purpose than to protect their selfish political

interests, but for long-time observers of the legislative process who can watch

lawmakers gut critical legislative initiatives with the calm self-assurance

that solutions are possible, even in seemingly dead-end situations. The

legislative session is not over, they say, until it's over. This is reassuring

to those of more inclined to think that the myopic scope of incumbent legislative

vision (on the mass transit issue, for example) indicates that the session was

over before it began.
