They Really Should Read Those Things First

You know that your legislature is passing too many laws when the people voting for them can't take the time to read them. In one of the classic last-hour omnibus type of bills, the state of West Virginia has inadvertantly made english its official language.

I thought that most legislators in this country are lawyers. Seems they forgot the rule about reading the small print. This goes to show why such big package bills should be done away with. By putting our elected representatives in positions that they would have to vote for something they don't want for something good (as defined by expediency), it gives them later wiggle room to say that they were always for the other thing when it becomes fashionable.
