    Since we're going through all our drama with the labor dispute, I found a fun, pretty parallel story about what's going on in the Texas government about school financing and tax reform.

    Don't get caught up in the details, but the whole "he said, he said and it's everyone's fault but ours" is much more enjoyable when it's happening among people I could care less about.

    Which in turn emphasises the point that what the NHL is going through is standard business practices as this article illustrates in labour deputes.
