Signs of a long weekend

OLYMPIA -- Members of the Senate showed some signs they were still recovering from a long weekend which had them up until 2:30 a.m. Saturday, then back Saturday afternoon for more votes.

First Sen. Adam Kline, D-Seattle, was extolling the virtues of a gubernatorial appointment, and mentioned he was a graduate of Gon-zah-ga Law School. That one passed without comment.

Then Sen. Tim Sheldon, D-Potlach, took a minute to reflect on the University of Washington men's basketball team winning their conference for the first time in a while. Except he kept calling it the PAC-10 conference.

"That would be the PAC-12 Conference," Lt. Gov. Brad Owen, who was presiding over the Senate, corrected after Sheldon sat down.
