Hands-On Government

This morning on the news there was a story about a bill in front of our state legislature to legalize noodling.

For those of you unfamiliar with the term, it's a method fishing where you catch them with your bare hands. Apparently the law's been on the books for 90 years, and it looks like in a rare case of pondering a government roll-back, they're considering repealing the law.

If you can catch a fish with your bare hands, buddy, more power to ya. You da man!

But I gotta wonder... who was it that was sitting down in Jefferson City 90 years ago saying, "People are catching fish with their hands???? We can't allow that!!!!!"
