Tales from the Capitol

Posted By on Fri, Mar 4, 2011 at 11:44 AM

A legislative story going around:

It was during the battle over the bill to fluoridate water supplies. A House member supportive of the legislation, one who happens to have a booming voice, found himself engaged in debate with an anti-fluoridation woman by the elevator on the first floor. Finally, he'd had enough.

"You are a stupid motherf*****," he told the woman.

A man standing next to the woman said:

"Did you just call my wife a stupid motherf*****?"

Said the legislator:

"If you're with her, you're a stupid motherf***** too."

As the story goes, a police officer happened to be standing nearby and separated the antagonists before physical mayhem.

  • 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.
