The Florida Senate violates the Constitution, lies about it, then admits what it did ... but don't worry, we'll call another special session and fix it ... I don't care which party is in the majority -- even my own, as it happens -- the Senate has acted reprehensibly and, more important, illegally.
Forty-seven years ago, the musical "Hair" opened on Broadway. Elderly mavens -- the core theater audience then, unlike the throngs of tourists flocking to cheap movie adaptations today -- were instructed that America was entering an "Age of Aquarius." The old moral rules were extinct: we were entering a new era of freedom, experimentation and self-expression.
