The federal government’s mounting debt is often blamed on a failure of leadership, but leaders may not be the only ones at fault.

NPR reports surveys show most voters want more government (than they’re willing to pay for).

KENTUCKY~ A MSU student sues Sigma Pi over alleged racism. Paducah makes a national list of historic destinations. McCracken County wants to rezone property so a steel company can create over a dozen jobs there. 342 Fort Campbell heroes returned home from Afghanistan last night (in time for ex-Prez Bush’s booksigning there today). A measure that would graduate high schoolers early passes the Senate. House members OK school bus advertising and pass a bill that would contrast economic incentive$ with results. One House committee approves a proposal that would give shorter sentences for non-violent crimes. US House Representative Ben Chandler stands up for public broadcasting.

ILLINOIS~ Governor Quinn’s budget proposal cuts aid, services and borrows more money to pay old debt.

OVC Men’s Basketball~ APSU > JSU, UTM > EIU.
