I would have if there'd been an election in Anne Arundel county.

Texans voted today on (among other things) whether to abolish the constitutional authority for the office of Inspector of Hides and Animals. As the Houston Press says, "If it passes, you — and your children — will face a bleak future of uninspected hides. And animals."

And just how many hides and animals get inspected now?

For the purposes of the original office... none. The office has been an elected position since 1876 and not all Texas counties had an Inspector. Legislation in 2003 and 2006 effectively abolished the position, so today's vote was really just to remove references to it from the Texas Constitution. Just a drop in the bucket compared to the 440 amendments already on record! To my knowledge there has been no upsurge in cattle theft since the disappearance of the Inspector of Hides and Animals.

Ah yes, the good old over-specified Texas constitution. What a lovely bit of political humor that is.

*Oh*! I understand now. I thought you had gone for full US citizen status.

No, but only because my town didn't have an election today. :-)
