Well, hey there MACo Folks!
Happy Monday! It is Monday, right? Hard to tell since every Legislative Day (LD) feels like a Monday, and the closer we get to the end, the more all the Mondays meld together into one long heated HEL(ena) day.
And what’s worse? My mind has been infected by all the maniacal hot air accumulating under the Dome, and all I can think about is adjournment…and all I dream about are election bills and property tax bills and sometimes they meld together into one giant blob of horribly written election destroying reform legislation that’s being pushed by the very folks bringing all the bills to cut property taxes except THIS bill is hiding school funding via property tax increases through veiled statutes and long amendments during transmittal deadlines…and then the evil bill grows legs and chases me around with a hot poker until eventually my head literally explodes like confetti and the confetti is made up of mini malicious baby bills that take over the Capitol…
But then I wake up. And my head is in fact NOT exploded. And it’s just another Monday. And I am sad. I am sad, because I’m losing my MIND, and I can’t separate the nightmares from the dreams, AND IT’S STILL NOT SINE DIE.
(Inner Voice: I’m fine. It’s fine. Everything’s fine. Inhale. Exhale. Breeeeeaaaaathe……Nope. Not working. Drink your coffee and get on with the update…)
