I get a small cameo on the Seattle Channel Legislative preview show. I’m in the first 30 seconds, and all I get to say is “Nobody is going to be able to ram anything down anyone else’s throat.” This is in the context of host Brian Callanan talking about the split control of the Legislature. Seattle City Council President Tim Burgess gets a better quote “They have a tough job in Olympia this year.” He says it with a deeply sincere expression that makes it look like he really is sorry for us.
Both of us are right – we DO have a tough job this year and nobody will get to ram anything down anyone else’s throat. That doesn’t mean people won’t try. I’ll try to report on the theater as we go through the session.
