What sense does it make to force an obvious senior citizen to prove that she is over 21 when she buys a bottle of wine, but doesn't require a citizen to prove that they are who they say they are when they cast a vote?
If the Legislature is now busying itself debating laws with no practical effects, while avoiding debates where action is still necessary, then it's time to save the taxpayers' money, and send them home early.
