if we really can't stop this kind of ridiculous BS from ever happening to begin with, can't we at least not let it drag out for months, wasting so much time and attention? this is just embarrassing. i hate telling people where i live when they usually don't even know it's a state and then these absurdities turn out to be the kind of substantiating trivia you get when you google it.
it's easy to agree that we need a little fun, a little something that distracts us from the underlying truth about TANF being the official state income. what is not easy is to have it wrapped up in this kind of package. it's no fun to be identified as the people who are more concerned with making an obscure cake & cola "official state" items than devoting that same time, energy, & money into heat, health, jobs, etc for our citizens.
