"Compromise did not used to be a dirty word"

With most states having "citizen legislatures", learning from each other about best practices trends and solutions is of great value. There was much research, many tools, and inspiring speakers. I was able to listen and speak with someone I watch on TV too. Yesterday Ken Adelmen shared his experiences being in the room with Ronald Reagan and Michail Gorbachov while compromising and trying to do what is best for all and to reduce nuclear proliferation. Compromise did not used to be a dirty word. Now back to work to learn about federal transportation funding. We still need a bridge.
