On Nov. 26, in his weekly broadcast, Gov. Paul LePage claimed to have heard from “hundreds of business leaders” during three recent summit conferences of Maine’s employers.

“They” spoke of the “high cost of doing business in Maine.”

No argument with the message, but “hundreds” of messengers within such a short time frame seems a bit extravagant, particularly since our governor is not well known for listening.

Perhaps the “several” mural objectors have been cloning, or maybe we are just being treated to more of the usual stable commodity from our best supplier.
