It's Humpty Dumpty Fall Apart Day

Orlando's coveted commuter line has had a train wreck. The Senate has packed together so many education reforms into one that the House appears unwilling to take it in one swallow. House and Senate leaders have spent the day trying to piece together the ailing insurance bill and it's now on life support. And the budget, well, that may be all they get done this week.

Then again, it is Wednesday and, as any capital observer knows, important legislation always falls apart -- sometimes very theatrically -- before it comes together.

That's the view from the 5th floor of the Capitol at this reading. Stay tuned. More to come.
