    The federal budget fight is well under way. Not only is Congress still trying to get an FY11 budget completed, they must begin work on the FY12 budget if they are going to be able to pass one this year. I have hopes for the House doing their duty, but doubts about the Senate.

    If the Senate can not agree to cut Nevada's Cowboy Poetry Festival, is there any hope of anything meaningful being done? I fear not!
