On the lighter side-Scott “bqwatvr” Brown’s week from hell

The decline and fall continues. For what it is worth, the NYT's Gail Collins suggests Brown isn't competent enough to manage such an effort: "If that made the difference, it would have been the most significant thing Brown ever managed to achieve in his legislative career.

Massachusetts DCF is a national disgrace-we can do better

There's no question that DCF is in desperate need of an overhaul. It needs better management, better procedures, and almost certainly a bigger budget so that caseloads can be reduced. I suspect that Adrian Walker is right in thinking that jconway's wish that "a strong and experienced professional child advocate can be found and placed in charge immediately" is unrealistic, given that a new Governor is arriving in less than a year, but righting this agency needs to be a priority both now and early in the next Governor's term. - promoted by david
