Good column today by Brummett on Sen. Jack Critcher, the new president pro tem, quoted in the D-G the other day as indicating education issues don’t interest him. Good thing, is Brummett’s “defense” of the remark. Leave provincial pork barreling to Critcher and the serious work of complying with court orders on schools to more serious, studious senators (who don’t happen to be members of Critcher’s ruling Brotherhood.)
