Things that I would have lots of opinions about if it weren’t finals week

 

  1. The new Florida law which requires drug testing for people on public aid.  This is a bad idea for hundreds of reasons, including the administrative expense that is going to accompany it and, more importantly, the damage to the dignity of the poor.  This is an especially daft move for Florida
  2. Catholic Charities in the Rockford Diocese halting adoption services because they don’t want to facilitate adoptions for gay couples. I mean, Catholic Charities can decide who they want to contract with, no worries, my gripe is that as the state abdicates more and more of its safety net services to private agencies–many of them faith-based organizations–and the institutional structure to provide those services at the state level atrophies I would expect more moral conflicts like this. And, I would suggest that the biggest losers here are kids who were being served.
