A "public option" increasingly looks DOA in the health reform debate. We’d settle for a nonprofit arrangement that is the functional equivalent.


If Gov. Gregoire and the Legislature are so determined to assert a nebulous “privilege” against having to produce certain documents, they should propose that the exemption be written into the state public records law.
