Remember that mine-tailings bill that went down amid consternation over the prospect of dredging the Coeur d’Alene basin? Its sponsor, Rep. Dick Harwood, R-St. Maries, still is lamenting the death of the bill in the Senate, after it had passed the House, as a low point of this year’s session. In the spirit of the laughter that’s spread through both houses today, here’s a little rhyme:
If you go down to St. Maries
Ask who believes in tooth fairies
They vote for a man
Who sees riches in plans
That others call Superfund-scary.
