    DELAWARE ITEM The News-Journal has an op-ed today on the state’s budget mess. Some of the ideas are pretty good (including vouchers) but at least one makes no sense to me.

    Stop building and funding libraries that aren’t part of neighborhood schools. This has caused a costly duplication of resources.

    What does one have to do with the other? Public libraries are open to all. School libraries obviously aren’t. Public libraries may not be mentioned in the Constitution, but they do date back to the founding of the country. They are integral to having an informed citizenry. This is just a dumb idea.
