A few observations to chew on this sunny Wednesday morning:
- Once again the Seattle Times editorial board urges the Washington State Supreme Court to follow the will of the voters. I’m no lawyer (much to my mother’s chagrin,) but I always thought their oath was to follow the, you know, um… Constitution.
- See, this is why public education fails. How can we expect our children to succeed in life when they’re wasting time on frivilous things like music, instead of studying for the WASL?
- Manhattan District Attorney Fred Thompson won the straw poll at the WSRP’s 25th Annual Gala Dinner & Auction, leading Party Chair Luke Esser to pronounce that the other candidates (you know, the ones actually running) have their work cut out to match the support Thompson is receiving from “grassroots activists.”
Hmm. More revealing than Thompson’s victory is Esser’s definition of “grassroots,” which apparently refers to the 29-percent who bothered to vote at a $100-a-plate Republican “Gala.” Perhaps the word he was searching for was “elite”…?
