As soon as people got word of the legislators’ plans, they instantly became a laughing stock.

Bet it’d really bring out their eyes.
I wonder if these were the gals that were streakers in college in the 70’s?

I wear black 75% of the time, please use your voice and not your wardrobe or posture to make a stand…it makes the point of speaking up a little more valuable
