On June 22, the NBA will conduct its player draft. Lots of speculation is swirling around with sports pundits weighing the options and odds on which team will draft which college player. It made me start thinking about the process and, as so often happens; I began to see it in political terms.

The sports pundits’ political counterparts are droning on and on about the President’s budget proposal and the merits or demerits of each item contained therein. And there seems to be no chance of — dare I say it — a balanced budget.
