News Leader notes Gibbons veto session remarks

In a post Thursday, I noted Senate Pro Tem Michael Gibbons' statement that the veto session was the time for saying goodbyes to colleagues who won't be there during the next legislative session, not a time to debate the issues.
It appears I am not the only one who thought that choice of words was inappropriate. An editorial in today's Springfield News-Leader also criticizes Gibbons, as well as other GOP leaders who derailed the opportunity to debate issues of importance to Missourians.

Randy- Many of us suspect you re-ran the Mike Gibbons post today to remind readers your blog had the story first. Some even suggested the SNL writer might be a former student.
