The New York Times Tells Nebrskans What to Do

Yes, today's times tells Nebraskans what they need to do about their troubled children and their health care. While there is no doubt the state has problems in regard to troubled children we're not sure that someone in New York City should be telling us what to do. As for their S-Chip advocacy, we've already expressed our opinions many times on what we think of that expansion of government.

While I whole-heartedly agree that the NY Times has no business meddling in Nebraska internal affairs, the unfortunate real issue here is that there are signi-ficant problems with the state's programs for troubled children, and these problems have been festering for years! Not very long ago, I brought up the subject with a state senator, with the intent of merely attempting to obtain information on how some of these issues were being approached, and I essentially received a rather defensive response, as if everything was under control, and being adequately addressed. I am afraid that this is the general mindset, and, unless a greater effort is made to deal with some of these issues, Nebraska may attract more unfortunate national media attention.
