Editorial: Viewer feedback on Legislature's failure

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Last week’s editorial on the lack of any progress from the current legislative special session produced a huge response. The responses unanimously state that the legislators are not accomplishing what they are elected to accomplish. Here are a few of those comments.

Roger was quick to get to his point he said: “Is there no way to force a recall and fire all of these folks?”

Wanda was also brief with her comment: “Cut their pay out completely till they do their jobs. Then you would see them do something.”

Fran is all for structure: “I believe that our state Senate and House of Representatives should be made to first balance the budget before any of their special projects are introduced. It’s a proven fact that they aren’t interested in working in a timely manner.”

Sandra’s comments get to the heart of the matter: “They won’t get re-elected if they raise taxes. This for me is a good argument for term limits.”

As always I have saved my favorite for last.

Doug writes: “For once in a VERY RARE instance I have to agree with you WSFA."

Doug, I am happy that we can agree once in a while. I won’t tell anyone if you don’t. Thank you all for the comments.

Unfortunately it looks like we will be talking about this more in the near future.

    The subject of legalizing marijuana is more openly discussed these days, but I sense I will be long gone before our state ever passes such legislation.

    I can’t begin to thank all the people in Montgomery who went out of their way to make an outsider feel at home. In only a year and a half we have made lifelong friends, friends who we would count on with our lives and our children’s lives. But it is the South, and that is what you do.
