"Hot Economy"
from the mind of  Duke.

Several days ago I received in the mail a newsletter from the senator of my district Jeanne Kohl-Welles (D). A few interesting tidbits were found within:

"Thanks to a strong economy and smart budgeting choices during the past two years, we legislators face a rare budget reserve rather than the daunting deficits that were so painfully common following September 11."

And further down:

"We have nearly $2 billion in unexpected, unbudgeted revenue. But we also know that the hot economy behind that reserve is cooling."

So we have an economy that is not only "strong", but "hot"? Am I the only one who cannot recall any democrat ever praising the economy while republicans controlled congress? But with democrats now in the majority, suddenly it seems this is finally okay to talk about. How very interesting.
