    That miscellaneous one about the windows and doors odor is going to be expensive for the State. I assume Willard Ice will be shutdown immediately as every moldy window and scum door reaks in that place.
    As for another misc, I did not know bears were primates.

    It’s days like this when I wish I had an in with a House or Senate minority leader.

    So much for my circus career as a bearmonkey handler…

    I’m calling on Tom Devore to take SB 1883 all the way to the SCOTUS. I thought we lived in a free country.
