Tuesday's results in the Wisconsin recall election are just the beginning of the broad-based reform movement that's necessary to save states and municipalities from insolvency, to improve the nation's increasingly decrepit public services, and to restore the proper balance between the citizen and the government official. And as Steven Greenhut observes, the results so far are highly encouraging. When put to the test, to the simple choice of the unions vs. the rest of us, the public—even in the most liberal places in the country—does the right thing.
