Stupid Is As Stupid Does

Subscriber onlyFairly early in my professional career, a boss of mine told me I was ignorant. Of course, I took that as an insult. Before I could reply (which was probably a good thing), he said that I wasn't dumb but rather was just ignorant of the facts. In other words, I just didn't have the knowledge that the situation required. It wasn't that I couldn't learn, but that I hadn't yet. Continue reading...

Missouri House Deals With 45 Bills

Subscriber onlyWe dealt with over 45 bills last week. Many of these were brought up as a courtesy to the bill handlers to give them experience for possible legislation next year. As I've said before, most good bills are the effort of as much as three or more years work. Some of them, although just one- or two-liners, are important additions to statute. HB1955 is a good example. It exempts volunteer workers from having to have workers compensation insurance. Organizations like the VFW or Elks Clubs that depend on volunteers who only work a few hours a month to do much of their work would be exempted from the expense and paper work of workers comp. SB677 allows Epinephrine usage in emergency situations and SB814 gives deployed military personal an exemption from Missouri Income tax. There were also some very complicated bills such as HB1765 which deals with Criminal Code Revisions. This is an example of a bill that has been in the works for 4 years or more. HB1465 allows doctors to have more latitude with collaborative practices with nurse practitioners. This law has tremendous importance for rural areas where there are fewer and fewer doctors.

I Dream Of Manoppello

Subscriber onlyI awoke from a dream that I was convinced would go unexplained. The dream was about a word, Manoppello. I believe many of my dreams are an amalgamation of one part fantasy and one part reality recollected. However, determining how much of the sleep-generated story is fantasy and how much is based on reality is a difficult, if not impossible, undertaking. Continue reading...
