Afterthoughts

Commenting in this space on the subject of campaign reform violates my own journalistic law: Campaign-reform stories should be carried only in the comics section or on the obituary page.

- First of all, nobody in Congress wants to reform a bloody thing. They all say, "But we want the right kind of reform." Remember that: "Right kind" is code for "dead on arrival."- If a member of Congress ever did happen to come up with a campaign-reform bill totally acceptable to both parties, the leaders would sit him down and say, "Congratulations, you did it. Now we are going to have to kill you."
