Detroit News columnist Nolan Finley raises questions about how much control we should give government

Tomorrow I will probably stop at our neighborhood Biggby's coffeeshop for my usual two dollar coffee before I go to help lead a class in East Lansing.  I wish they would have a discussion question for the day.

I'd love to see the folks who stop in there react to Detroit News columnist Nolan Finley's offering today about how government programs are being bungled in the Motor City.  He points to what he says are daily stories about misspent funds, cheating and audits which raise big, big question marks.

His question for our local coffeeshop:  How much control over private institutions and our personal lives do we want to give a government who can't manage the money it has now?
