Washington State Licensing Changes

PreviousPage 8 of 8

I have emailed Tim Eyman and his organization about this,
and also about an issue with Washington State Ferries and
all that did was put me on their spam list requesting
financial support.

A little more Whine, my dear?

From the Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy:
We open with Arthur Dent laying in front of the bulldozer about
to demolish his house...

Mr. Prosser: This bypass has got the be built and it is going to be built!

Arthur: Why has it got to be built?

Mr. Prosser: It's a bypass. You've got to build bypasses! Besides, you
should've made your protest months ago. These plans have been on display
at the planning office now for a year.

Arthur: "On display"?! I had to go down to a cellar!

Mr. Prosser: But look you found the notice didn't you?

Arthur: `Yes, yes I did. It was on display in the bottom of a locked
filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door
saying "Beware of The Leopard".'

Mr. Prosser: Mr. Dent, have you any idea how much damage this bulldozer
would suffer if I just let it roll right over you?

Arthur: How much?

Mr. Prosser: None at all.

Shortly before the Vogons demolish the Earth to make way for a hyperspace bypass,
they inform the planet that "All the planning charts and demolition orders have
been on display in your local planning department on Alpha Centauri for fifty of
your Earth years, so you've had plenty of time to lodge any formal complaint and
it's far too late to start making a fuss about it now." When someone objects to
this, Protstetnic Vogon Jeltz replies, "What do you mean you've never been to
Alpha Centauri? For heaven's sake mankind, it's only four light years away you know.
I'm sorry, but if you can't be bothered to take an interest in local affairs that's your own lookout."

Question: Have you ever read "The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy?
Answer: The subject matter involved is not high on my reading list.

Care for a little Brie with the whine?

There is always the 10% who didn't get the word. Too late for that now.

When the whistling stops, the bomb has landed (and the louder noise begins).
Time then to grab a shovel, fill up the crater and rebuild.

Pump up a website, or start petitions, an email barrage to your state reps, do something more active (in Washington) if you are really concerned. I wouldn't depend on Tim E. The ball's in your court, not his.

I helped get the training part (Good) in. Maybe you can help get some of the BS part (Bad) of the statute out.

Or bite the bullet.

Good Luck in your endeavors,
