Every little bit helps

Alabama's 10 Republican state senators have vowed to refuse compensation for this summer's special session on the General Fund budget and have asked Democrats to follow suit.

Sure, it's a publicity stunt to deflect attention from the fact that GOP senators were just as responsible for the Senate's inaction during the regular session as their Democratic counterparts. And sure, the move will save the state coffers only $600 a day during the special session, so it's largely symbolic.

But hey, it's better than nothing.
