Toxins, Beer, Packages and Music...

What do these items have in common? They are all subjects of House Resolutions today. We are busy, folks. Here are the resolutions we approved on June 19, 2007:
HR 138: Commemorating June 2007 as Black Music Month.
HR 140: Designating July 2007 as Michigan Craft Beer Month.
HR 141: Honoring the 100th anniversary of the United Parcel Service.
And, most importantly...
HR 139: Memorializing manufacturers of products marketed for children who are seven years old or younger to remove certain toxic substances from the products and replace these substances with the least toxic substances available.

Fear not, citizens! The Legislature is in session, protecting our kids while celebrating good music, good beer and a great package delivery company.

...not that there is anything wrong with that!

Jack! What about the state soil?? When are you legislators going to pick a state soil for the rest of us?

Glacial morraine?
Bottom-land muck?
Sleeping Bear sand?

Breathless Michiganians await breathlessly....

What about DUtch American Friendship Day? the House adopted that resolution not too long ago and that seemed okay with you. It seems just as silly as the rest of them. Don't we need a little consistency in thought?

to random girl, from Jack. You are right. I am a little inconsistent. I bowed to the pressure from my Dutch colleagues and signed on to a stupid resolution. I think that was the last one I signed on to and likely the last resolution I will ever sign, unless it has some real meaning. thanks for holding me accountable.
