An Early Report from the Intern

posted by on February 28 at 15:51 PM

I’m leaving on vacation tomorrow. (I haven’t had one since November… ‘05.)

So, I’m sending our 24-year-old intern to Olympia tomorrow to cover the hearing on Sen. Eric Oemig’s (D-45, Eastside Seattle Suburbs) impeachment resolution. (I wasn’t so hot on the resolution anyway.)

Showing some promising intern initiative, the intern (Jonah) found a bus of activists going down to Oly for the hearing, and said he’d head down with them. Seemed like a good idea. Good color.

That was on Monday.

However, I just got this e-mail from Jonah:

There isn’t gonna be a bus going down to Olympia due to “lack of interest” but I’m still going…

It's a trap!

That's no bus, it's a whale! In a bus costume!

Why do Johnah's alwayas have such strange last names?

But the point of my post -

Ok so it's not really usefull for Jonah, because it only runs Fri, Sat, Sun. But it's a bus (not a whale - they would never allow bikes - too hard to digest), and it goes to Olympia - and Portland. I mention this because I like having it available, and that is more likely if other people take it.

Besides it's greener than a cadillac suv hawked with pogues theme music and al gore's green oscar stamp of approval.

Grrr. Still bitter. Still bitter.

The resolution is being heard after a date called "cutoff" in the legislature. It can't go anywhere - not out of committee, not to a vote, nothing. Making the trek down to Olympia for a piece of legislation that is dead on arrival would be a deterrent for me too.
