It's easy and fun to do. Hell, I've done it. But lately I've tried to avoid it. Here are a few reasons why:
- There are 7,382 state legislators. Only a few are the fools that get so much publicity.
- In one state this year, Maine, over 1,700 bills were introduced in the state legislature.
- In mostly sane Minnesota there have been 267,397 bills introduced in the state legislature since 1849. Of these, about 17% have been passed.
