What a wonderful report. It's too bad Springdale didn't send an education senator to the state senate. Diana Gonzales would have served Springdale's interests well.

Instead they get a state senator who's only bill this year is to allow open carry of firearms.

I wonder how long it will take rufusmccoy to show up and comment about how those illegal immigrants breed like cockroaches, or some such. It's a subject that is dear to whatever organ he uses to symbolize emotion-- his spleen, I think.
