Description

No Need for More 'BOPSA' A few years back the catch phrase among television news consultants was "No BOPSA!", bopsa being an acronym for "bunches of people sitting around." By its very nature, the Legislature is bunches of people sitting around. When our lawmakers make "sweeping changes" or take "bold action," it's usually no more dramatic than the swoop of a pen or the rap of a gavel. And that's fine. Just as long as the sitting-around, talking-about stuff leads to decisive, thoughtful action. The trouble starts when the only action taken by the bunches-of-people-sitting-around-talking-about-stuff is to create more bunches-of-people-sitting-around-talking-about-stuff.
