Citizen Legislature

Our citizen legislature is back to work. The big task is plugging budget shortfalls without raising taxes, something that probably won't happen.

All these citizen guys and gals have trouble focusing. I've heard about legislation from legalizing same-sex marriage to changing the way we generate electricity in this state. (For the record, we have abundant coal, oil and gas in this state, as well as uranium deposits and ample potential for solar and wind power. Guess which ones the citizens proposing the legislation want.)

Oh, well. It may be for the best. With so much on the plate, they won't eat it all. No new laws are good new laws, and the citizen legislators who fail to legislate will blessedly leave the rest of us citizens alone.
