A pic from the 2006 legislature opening day

I'll have to admit to wondering if this guy, or rather, a distant relative, would be back at the legislature this year. I didn't see him. But I thought I'd share the picture anyway.

Ian Lind's post this morning puts me on notice that he spotted me making off with a Costco chocolate cake. He probably has photographic evidence, too.

I need to reassure him that it was for research purposes only. It's important to have a basis for comparison, right?

And I can report to you that the Costco chocolate cake was better than some legislative offerings, but that many were far better. Costco doesn't do a bad job, actually.

If you'd like to do your own taste test, mark your calendar for opening day next year (January 16, 2008). You'll need to figure out parking nearby since there aren't enough spaces in the basement parking lot to accomodate all the diners ...   er, visitors.

Yes, there is such a thing as a free lunch. Even better, until May, we make the legislators work for it.
