I wrote a letter ("Basketball and politics," Readers' Forum, Nov. 17) comparing the NBA lockout with the Budget Deficit Committee.
When I wrote the letter, I never imagined that the NBA and its players would show more flexibility (a compromise by definition means nobody gets everything they want), more persistence (multiple bargaining sessions with durations in double digit hours) and more just plain common sense than the U.S. Congress — which had far, far more at stake.
I'll be rooting for the Jazz, and, more importantly, for a new Congress. The current incumbents should go the way of the lockout.
