One last editorial on the withdrawn mandatory snow-tire bill - this panel didn't fly over at the News-Miner (once again, the newest issue of the Ester Republic hoists the funny flag), assumably since anything that looks like a penis might offend delicate sensibilities, upset community standards and result in moral outrage.“I meditate and put on a rubber tire with three bottles of beer. Most of the time I just sit picking my nose and thinking.” - James Gould Cozzens
