It's kind of funny when I review our coverage of the Fiscal Wakeup Tour's local stop. In a guest column, Harry Zeeve of the bipartisan Concord Coalition, which sponsored the tour, wrote, "Our elected leaders in Washington are currently debating budget plans amid a new consensus that balancing the budget by 2012 is an important policy goal and that long-term fiscal policy is unsustainable."

Perhaps it's sad, given the amount of money spent by and lack of budget passed by our federal leaders the past couple of years.
