Eye On Olympia

In Olympia, a fan of the Great White Worm proposes a new state symbol…

On Olyblog, a lively and intensely local blog here in the capital city, writer stevenl makes an impassioned plea to declare the newly discovered giant white worm of the Palouse the “official state worm.”

Steven notes — I missed it at the time — that he made a similar plea a couple of months back to declare the much-maligned mountain beaver to be the state’s official rodent.

The beauty of making both of these uniquely Pacific Northwest animals official state symbols is that they will represent both sides of the state, mountain beavers on the wet side, giant Palouse earthworms on the high and dry side.

he writes.
