First things first

Legislators met today to recommend three constitutional amendments for the 2010 ballot.

Thank goodness they acted first on Sen. Steve Faris' NRA propaganda piece, the amendment to guarantee a right to hunt. fish, trap and "harvest" wildlife.

Phew. Close call. PETA was about to take over the state any minute and make veganism mandatory. Faris' resolution came out first, faster than a speeding bullet.

Update later on the less important stuff.

UPDATE: Speaker Robbie Wills' amendment to provide for smaller "super fund" projects also was approved. The meeting adjourned without a final decision on the third -- likely an amalgamation of proposals to change constitutional limits on interest.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
