Boise County Bankruptcy

It is not very often (ever?) that Boise County makes Drudge Report--but our county is filing bankruptcy under Chapter 9.  Wall Street Journal gave the sad details today.  Regular readers may recall that I vigorously supported building of the Alamar Ranch project.  Boise County's refusal to allow the project to go forward is what led to the lawsuit that provoked the bankruptcy.  I warned them.  But no one listens to me in this county.

On the plus side, it did provide an especially good example for my U.S. History class of the dangers of runaway democracy, and how it led to the calling of the Philadelphia Convention.
