Mr. Smith takes a hike

Where was State Rep. Ancel Smith, the tie-breaking vote on SB 152, when the bill failed by an 8-8 vote in House Health & Welfare Committee yesterday? He was sitting on the couch in Suite 432 of the Capitol Annex watching it on the television monitor—apparently taking refuge from a controversial vote.

If you ever wondered why they compare the making of laws to the making of sausage, now you know why.

Ancel Smith will never be mistaken for one of the legislature's most intelligent members. His nickname is "Hard Rock" and apparently that is an apt description of his gray matter.

He could very well be described as the Lonnie Napier of the Democratic Party.
