    It is hump day in the 2015 legislative session, day 53 of 105, after which lawmakers adjourn. At least that’s their hope. And it’s 1, 2, 3, why aren’t they fighting more? Maybe it’s the sunshine. Maybe it’s the lack of elections next fall. Or maybe everyone’s drinking a new brand of tea. Whatever the reason, […]

In any case, people who have accumulated a lifetime of toys and […]
