Couple of things

- See, common sense does sometimes prevail. The Legislative Review Committee take a look at the staff recommendations and realized that enforcement of existing laws makes more sense than writing a bunch of new ones that hurt everyone, consumer and business alike.

- And, refreshingly enough, perhaps a little more common sense (though no thanks to our own Sen. Ralph Hudgens who voted for this thing back in the State Senate). This pipeline bill was a train wreck. It's a perfect example of the disarray that rules the leadership of the state GOP right now. After passing a law that restricts the seizure of private property to be then turned over to another private owner, they came up with this bill which, in essence, did that very thing.

- Speaking of that, Morris News Service put together a nice little article on the GOP confusion, and in it you'll learn to dislike Rep. Glenn Richardson that much more.

- Someone could answer this much better than me, but I think there are appropriate flag ettiquite rules regarding military deaths in an ongoing conflict.

It's either Presidential order (filtered down through the governors) or written into law when flags are flown at half-mast. If the President felt like it, he could fly the flags at half-mast for the loss of the soldiers.
