Brummett takes the high road and notes the irony in a legislature that is reluctant to take on the responsibility of running the lottery, highway and game and fish commissions while assuring folks that they’re completely safe behind the wheel of a car going 110 mph.

I find it hard to believe that the state Constitution truly allows Rep. Bruce Holland (R/TP-Nascar) to floor it on the county roads of Perry County trying to outrun an officer of the law and get away with a misdemeanor. Perry County should have tested that law and put Holland behind bars.
