    Mr. ARPro guy, you are far too modest. (Did I actually write that?) If a single pizza guy in NWA can take credit killing a milk tax, you certainly deserve at least 1/2 of the credit for killing the ARCOGLOWARM. If not for you and David Sanders, NOTHING would have been written regarding this absurd gob of nomothetic tomfoolery. Your efforts, and those of Sir Sanders, did the trick. I have no doubts a successful effort by the ARCOGLOWARM would have impaled Arkansans with new taxes and expenses enough to choke a cow.

    Quite frankly, this is nothing to be made light of. Short of bloggers providing forums for guys like you to get the story out, politicians are free to pillage and plunder to their hearts content. The MSM will do nothing to stand in the way. Case in point – the MSM (Brummet, et al especially) love to speak of the wonderful legislative skills and service to the state of Percy Malone. Is there a bigger crook? Did anyone ever think someone would come along to out-Nick old Nick Wilson? Without guys like you, we would be in much worse shape for each and every legislator out there.

    Great job my friend. On to the next issue…

    Ah, Cameron, if I’m modest on this front, it’s because whatever role this blog played in sticking a much-deserved shiv in ARGOCOGLOWARM was quite minimal. All that glory goes to Mr. Sanders.

    And while we’re at it, let’s not forget that it was Arkansas Project commenter CAMERON BLUFF who bequeathed upon us the ARGOCOGLOWARM acronym, thus saving me from having to type “Arkansas Governor’s Commission on Global Warming” repeatedly. There’s a slot in the heavens reserved for you, sir.
    D.
