1. Here's a perspective on this from our local

"where are some powerful toes to step on" investigative journo, John Ralston. (I like his attitude)

http://www.ralstonreports.com/blog/was-rush-really-needed-web-poker

Now that lawmakers have passed a web poker bill faster than pocket Aces can get cracked, they can move just as quickly to tax fast food and ban smokers from working in hospitals.

Surely, I jest.

But when lawmakers work as quickly as they did Thursday – both houses passed the measure within an hour – and the governor immediately signs the bill, should anyone stop to ponder: What’s the big rush?

I could wonder why they can't even muster a serious public discussion of the state's antiquated tax system in the 25 years I have covered the Legislatuire but they can fast-track (an "emergency measure!) a web poker bill. Really?
