3. Just wondering, Nevada: How does it feel to elect a brothel owner to the state assembly, three weeks after he died in his sleep?
4. Gotta ask you both, Idaho and California: Any chance you’ll ever elect a governor who’s not a white dude? We get that Idaho loves governors with names like Butch and Dirk. But California? Really?
5. Congratulations, Utah, for approving medical marijuana. What took so long?
