Yes, government handouts need to be cut

“I am for doing good to the poor, but...I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. I observed...that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.”   ~ Benjamin Franklin

Another nice drink of rain this morning

By Mike Thayer

The Coralville/Iowa City area received just under 1-1/2 inches of rain this morning, and I swear the grass is already looking greener.

Combined with last week's quarter inch of rain, we're at about 1-3/4 inches in total for the month.  The monthly historical average is 3.17 inches so we're on track and hopefully seeing the light at the end of the tunnel as far as this drought goes.

More showers are expected through the day.

Area received a much needed drink of rain yesterday

Receiving the first real measurable rain since July 30, the Coralville/Iowa City area welcomed about one-quarter of an inch of rain on Wednesday.

Boy did we need that!  The amount wasn't near enough to call off the drought, but it was a breather at least.

Why the U.S. has three branches of government

"A single assembly is liable to all the vices, follies, and frailties of an individual; subject to fits of humor, starts of passion, flights of enthusiasm, partialities, or prejudice, and consequently productive of hasty results and absurd judgments. And all these errors ought to be corrected and defects supplied by some controlling power."

John Adams, Thoughts on Government, 1776
