W's smarter, younger brother, Jeb, has signed into law a total reform of Florida's election procedures. Punch card ballots will be illegal by the 2002 primary election and completely replaced by optical scan ballots at a cost to the state of about $32 million.
Talk about locking the barn door after the cow's gotten out.
There's no truth to the rumor that Katherine Harris was overheard saying to Jeb, "Now, we'll have to be really creative in how we steal the election for your older, dumber brother next time!"
W, meanwhile, with his buddy, Asscroft, have successfully blocked the implementation of a ban on building new roads in federal forests. These are roads that are built at taxpayer expense to assist private lumber companies in harvesting natural resources that belong to the public for their own private gain. (did you follow that?)
After "working on the issue" for eight years, the previous president issued the order last January 5th. Once again we're left wondering, if this was supposed to be such an important part of the Clinton "Environmental Legacy" why was it left till the last minute to be implemented by W? A cynic might think Tubby knew damn well it would never go into effect. (See also: Arsenic, in our water).
