Giving Some Like To A Salamander

For those of you in the mood, 7th grader Ilah Hickman is looking for some “likes” in her crusade to name the Idaho Giant Salamander as the official Idaho state amphibian. She's set up a Facebook page that now has 504 likes, entitled: “Idaho Giant Salamander for State Amphibian” page. Here's Ilah's message: “Hi my name is Ilah and ever since learning about Idaho state symbols in fourth grade, I have been trying to get the Idaho Giant Salamander designated as the newest state symbol (amphibian) for our great state. I hope that the Legislature gives me a full hearing this session and passes the bill I am working on. THANK YOU for your support!” You can see the page here.

Question: I consider this the least harmful piece of legislation that our lackluster Legislature has worked on this year. How about you?
