The halls of the Capitol may be relatively quiet when July arrives, but that doesn’t detract from the month’s importance when it comes to running state government. It marks the start of another fiscal year and, in even-numbered years, is when most new state laws take effect.
An old story illustrates the limitations caused by jumping to conclusions without considering the larger picture.
A young soldier and his commanding officer boarded a train and sat down next to a grandmother traveling with her pretty young granddaughter. As they continued the trip, the young soldier and young lady were obviously attracted to each other. As the train roared through a tunnel, you heard a kiss and then a slap.
The commanding officer rubbed his jaw and thought, “the young lady meant to slap my impudent soldier and hit me instead.”
