Mr. Sowell is wrong on one thing: Only in Washington is a reduction in the rate of growth of spending called a "cut." - In my state, Iowa, the legislature and even the public universities do it. I didn't know that until the school paper explained it after my university complained loudly about the legislature "cutting" their budget. It turned out that it wasn't a cut at all, but since they asked for an increase of 6% and only received an increase of 4%, the university bureaucrats hollered like stuck pigs that their budget had been cut!
