Make ‘em take the pledge: no more snuff boxes!


I got in touch with my delegate to the Virginia General Assembly a short while back, to ask about the money. I was told he was on vacation, and I'm sure he needed a rest. The legislature had just downed tools and dispersed, after its season of public service.
