The most recent dustup in Augusta concerns the governor placing a large TV monitor in public space with messages disparaging the Legislature for not giving him what he wants and how he wants it.

Come to find out there are rules about what is displayed in the state capitol building and the governor didn’t abide by them.

Let me suggest a fair and balanced way to deal with this: Take the offending television down, place it in an undisclosed location for several months and then display it adjacent to the mural from the Department of Labor. Perhaps our esteemed (or is it just steamed?) governor can be shown that some rules do apply to him and that his past actions have consequences.
