Earlier this year I wrote a rant about how the Commonwealth of Kentucky was cutting education funding for the second time in a few months to cover a budget shortfall - and higher education leaders were actually applauding the move as an act of political courage by the legislature.

Now we're looking at yet another cut in education, which the State Education Commissioner calls "devastating."

Once again, Kentucky's answer to an economic downturn is to make its future workforce less able to hold the high-skill, high-wage jobs the state needs to build its way out.

Waiter? Check, please.
