This is more like a tweet than a blog post, but...

We interrupt Goat Rope's ongoing and edifying series on the life and thought of Emerson so that I can rant about the antics in the WV legislature lately, particularly in the House. After watching events there for the last few weeks, I think I have come up with the perfect piece of legislation that would sail through in an instant.

The perfect piece of WV legislation this session would give tax credits to corporations who made guns out of coal in our rivers, with preference given to those who use lots of selenium. It would also increase penalties on anyone who had a problem with that.

(Emerson and links resume tomorrow.)

I was telling my wife that expanding medicaid to help poor people too much effort.

Giving state workers or teachers who haven't had a raise for several years just not time for it.

Introducing some initiatives to try to speed up the broadband or straighten up the waste and corruption of the broadband council no can do.

But gun legislation they are willing to fall all over themselves to do even when nobody might ask for it.
