Tom Corbett: Husbandry Ace

Corbett began his budget address by comparing fixing state government to pruning an overgrown apple tree. Funny. Old Farmer C. hasn't raised many apple trees lately, because if he did, he'd know that pruning limbs causes even more of them to grow back, the better to make more fruit. But old Tom has a different idea: cut those suckers back and seal them up, so instead of a thriving, heavily-laden plant, he'll have a lifeless stump. Won't have any food to feed the citizens, but he won't be spending any money on fertilizer, either. It's a win-win for the gardener from Hell!
