Good riddance:

Departure of Sam and his great experiment overdue

There was a time when we would have opposed the departure of Gov. Sam Brownback, not because of our fondness for his policies, but because we believe that he should clean up the mess that he created.

It appears that won’t happen now that Brownback’s been nominated by President Trump to become ambassador at-large for international religious freedom.

We would like to imagine that Brownback would have learned something from his failed experiment - that he might even feel a certain amount of remorse, disappointment, perhaps even some acknowledgement that trickle-down economics is not a viable way to run a state.
