I was really excited to see our new governor and our wonderful legislature convene. I just knew they were going to work on the terrible drug problem, black-lung legislation, our failing education system, the pension problems, a minimum-wage bill, renewable energy alternatives, health care and children in poverty.
However, I must have had my rose-tinted glasses on and mistaken our legislators as caring people. It seems they have gone back to what they really know and love: the four G’s: God, guns, gays and gynecology.
I thank them for letting me rest easy at night by not having to worry about the other problems facing Kentucky.
