The governor of Maine is a former manager from Marden’s. He brings to Maine Marden’s-quality government. The people of Maine think they are getting a good deal because it is cheap.

Government officials in New Mexico, on the other hand, are quite willing to take the federal money that pays for the mental health services that Mainers are being deprived of.

Are they smarter than Maine’s officials?

How do we measure quality?
