Guest columnist wonderfully rational

Thank you very much for printing Ron Avanzino’s comments about the “Budget deficit as opportunity” (Feb. 17). That may be the best column I have ever seen in The Union. It was rational, well and clearly written, knowledgeable, and best of all, he did not just find fault, he offered useful, realistic suggestions as to how to correct the problem.

Assuming Mr. Avanzino is correct, a 10 percent cut in all departments of state government seems entirely doable without excessive pain to any one department.

It would be wonderful if our politicians were as rational and realistic as this writer.
