Speed of lightning, roar of thunder, Sweet Polly Purebred would probably agree.
The Missouri House continues to devote its time to important legislation designed to address pressing matters of public interest. A bill, introduced today by Speaker Pro Tem Denny Hoskins (r):
FIRST REGULAR SESSION
HOUSE BILL NO. 723 [pdf]
98TH GENERAL ASSEMBLY
INTRODUCED BY REPRESENTATIVE HOSKINS.
1762H.01I D. ADAM CRUMBLISS, Chief Clerk
To amend chapter 10, RSMo, by adding thereto two new sections relating to the designation of
the state dogs.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the state of Missouri, as follows:
Section A. Chapter 10, RSMo, is amended by adding thereto two new sections, to be known as sections 10.112 and 10.113, to read as follows:
10.112. The dog known as “Old Drum”, whose death became the subject of an 1870 Missouri Supreme Court case and the delivery of a famous speech as the closing argument to the case known as the “Eulogy to Old Drum”, is designated as the historical dog of the state of Missouri.
10.113. The dog known as “Jim the Wonder Dog” is designated as Missouri’s Wonder Dog.

Hoping the Missouri General Assembly will address serious challenges absent distractions is about as futile as trying to herd cats.
