The importance of being Timmie

As Treasurer Tim Cahill rests up in his Tim Mahal, working out an answer to what happened to the pension-loophole closing "working group" he enlisted four years ago, someone else has surfaced to fill in the blanks on the treasurer's tirade about what is wrong with the Mass. Pike bond bailout bill working its way through the Legislature.

And it's a pity no reporter pressed Cahill or Deval Patrick about the relatively simple terms (but not necessarily easy) and conditions laid out by Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation President Mike Widmer.

The Legislature has four days to wrap up its business. Let's hope they can do this before heading out for the year. And let's hope the press corps holds their feet to the fire.

Maybe he has backed off because all those pension provisions help legislators, too . ..
