March Madness...Basketball or Legislature?

Today is the first day of March Madness, that great Spring tradition of college basketball playoffs! The Legislature is in session, but they really should take the day off.

Oh no, they have a very important resolution to take care of today. In fact, it is the ONLY thing on the calendar in the House. House Resolution 31 to promote "Project Safe Passage." What is that, you may ask? You can read it here. The essence is this: it seems surveys have shown that many birds are flying into tall buildings at night because someone left the lights on in the office and the birds became confused. So, we need to encourage occupants of tall buildings to turn off all the lights from 11:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.

If you live in a high-rise apartment, I guess it's no Conan O'Brien for you! And, speaking of March Madness, let's hope all the games are done by 11:00 p.m. Who knows? A confused Jayhawk may want to fly into your place to watch his favorite basketball team on TV!
