Gonzo Lawmakers - Day 37

A daily recap of the Georgia Public Broadcasting show "Lawmakers". The show airs weekdays at 7:00pm with a replay at 5:30am the following weekday.

Day 37

* The daily double continues!

* Oh thank god! This is the recap show so it'll be brief.

* Dave needs a shave. But so do I, so we'll let it pass.

* Earnest Dan Weber. This time with prodigious arms casually draped across desk.

* Now Earnest Dan Weber's in the well. How exciting! Unfortunately it's the rather popular bill to give a pay boost to science and math teachers so I doubt we'll see him wildly swinging his arms out of the frame.

* Wait a second. This bill allows DHR to cross reference Revenue records on someone applying for Medicaid or PeachCare. How in the name of all that's holy do we not already do this?

* Brian Thomas, the Democratic Rep that appears too young to text while drivinng a car, is back. They're talking some technical stuff about streams but really I just wanted to point out Thomas sure has received a lot of face time this session.

* Valarie reports that the Senate and House can't agree on transportation funding. Again. Degenerate gamblers are taking book on if they fail to get anything passed. Again.

* Snellville has a crematory in a 1400 sq ft house with the furnace in the garage. Everybody's Somebody in Snellville!

* Minoo!

* The child abuse exploitation reporting law. Minoo apparently gets the bills that we hear about every other day.

* We can buy food and drink at Marta stations! YAY!

* The bill to prevent businesses from having anything to do with Sudan. And the graphic is a peach on a map of Sudan. I promise you I have not gobbled any pharmaceuticals tonight. I swear it's there.

* I've completely lost focus. The peach over Darfur may have done me in.

* Tom Crawford time. I'm going to try to pull myself together during this intermission. But Tom's not wearing his glasses. It's a strange night, bubba. Strange indeed.

* God help us, Sine Die may not happen next week. This thing will never end.

* Oh Jesus Gawd! The latest stock committee footage has some legislator rubbing his shoeless foot!

* Earnest Dan Weber explains some education bill thingie. It allows students to transfer to any school which has room.

* Recess tomorrow! Thank goodness. Until next week, that's a wrap.
