The good, bad and ugly

(Continued)

 

This ugliness permeates the entirety of the legislature.  Only those few who stand up against these wrongful intrusions into personal matters can escape the hue of ugliness and assume the glow of goodness.  When the legislature actually passes such perfidious measures, then the party in control turns very ugly. 

 

This week a columnist read nationally wrote:  “This month the most dreadful legislation came out of Oklahoma and Arizona.”  Nice image builder, eh?
