We have all read about The Toddler and his efforts to raise dollar after dollar for only-god-knows-what. From sales taxes to bonds to loans, his appetite for income and reluctance to deal with inefficiencies and cronyism would be unbelievable if this were a Hollywood movie. Over at CBS News there is a 60 Minutes report on severe changes at University Medical Center in Las Vegas. This is not about imposing effeciencies, we are talking total shutdown of services. I can imagine the Toddler using a similar situation to try and suck more money out the taxpaying populace. What will it take to move him out of perpetual fund raising mode and into actual effective management of resources?
Ok, I know, I am asking for the moon, the sun and the stars. I can't help it. I do know I don't want to see this happening at Cook County Hospital.
