Fight. Fracas. Cutback. Logjam. Gridlock. Quandary. Of such words are headlines made in California politics in recent days.

Plowing through hours at a Fresno County Board of Supervisors meeting waiting for weird developments to occur (see blog posting "A 3 to 2 vote vs. reality"), sometimes other memorable moments occur.

FIRM (Fresno Interdenominational Refugee Ministries) and Lao Family successfully staved off the cuts, with the board instructing staff to trim money from other groups to sustain those two.

Isn't "more, better"? Why do we need to follow the guidelines if one more player on the field would give us an advantage and help us to score? Why do we need to follow the basics and fundamentals, aren't there times when you should "bend the rules"?
