Being first is making us last


How ironic, the governor of Maine, who does not support the tough child molestation “Megan’s Law,” recently signed into effect a Pet Protection from Domestic Abuse Law. It would appear that he is more concerned about Maine’s pets than he is Maine’s children.

The new pet protection law is the first in the nation. Being first is so important to Gov. Baldacci, as under his administration we have become the number one state for high taxes. We can only hope that autumn brings more than a change of leaves to Augusta.
