A Hint of Progress.  Call it the Iron Law of Conference Committees:  The more they are meeting publicly, the less that is getting done.  If that is any indication, things are starting to move.  Rumors are abounding (but then again they always are this time of year), but there is talk of targets being set soon, particularly for the tax conference committee.  If one believes that the transportation issue is not going to be resolved, that would leave only bonding and supplemental appropriations left to determine in addition to taxes.  All this points toward a very busy next few days.  Again, all bills have to be passed by 11:59:59 on Sunday, May 22, so the lawn won't get mowed this weekend.

Our next "waiting" song comes from 1986 (check out the hair!) with Nu Shooz' dance hit "I Can't Wait."
