DollarThomas Friedman’s Op-Ed in the Sunday NY Times entitled Real Men Tax Gas, makes sense in many ways, mostly in arguing that we have not proven to be very “tough” in making the difficult decisions.

The Truth about Bureaucracy, highlights some of these issues which are increasing apparent as government intervention approaches an all time high.
