Are we being too critical about our government?
By Byron McNutt

While going through my files, I found this July 3, 1990, column by Milwaukee Sentinel staff writer Alex Thien. He started by saying it was his annual rage. He wrote 21 years ago:
“There is something terribly wrong with the way things are going at every level of government. Everyone in Washington says we’re not paying enough taxes. The same is true here at home.
“At the same time, we’re also told we aren’t doing our fair share, that we should contribute more to worthy causes. To top it off, we’re urged to buy a new car, a new home or something else equally expensive to keep the economy from collapsing.
