  The Cost of Stupidity
On top of the tragic news from Spain, this put me in a really foul mood this morning:
A proposal to amend the constitution to ban gay marriage zipped through a second House committee with little opposition. The Ways and Means Committee, however, dealt only with finances of the proposal.

The bill is estimated to cost the state $2,000 for reporting votes, canvassing the results and preparing a sample ballot. Local governments would be on the hook for about $122,000 to add the amendment to the ballot.

I know those amounts are really small in the grand scheme of things, but it still annoys me that my state government is wasting any money on an effort to codify intolerance into the Minnesota state constitution.
