   JOKE    THOUGHT    OPINION
We bet you can’t read today’s edition of the Joke of the Day out loud three times fast!


"Reprove thy friend privately; commend him publicly."

~Solon (638 BC - 559 BC)


   THIS WEEK'S POLL
The Nebraska Legislature overrode the veto of Governor Pete Ricketts, and has abolished the death penalty in Nebraska. Republican lawmakers said capital punishment was inefficient, expensive and out of place with their party’s values. Nebraska joins 18 other states and Washington, D.C., in banning the death penalty.   Should Wyoming abolish the death penalty?



Under pressure from the Casper Star Tribune newspaper, the Wyoming Lottery released the salary of its CEO - $181,500 a year. But the Lottery refused to release any other salary information, saying it is a private company, and does not receive any taxpayer dollars. The newspaper says the Lottery is quasi-governmental, because the Governor appoints its Board of Directors.  Should the Wyoming Lottery be considered a public agency and follow the same rules as state government, or should it be considered a private company?





   LAST WEEK'S RESULTS
(WyomingNetwork does NOT represent this as a scientific poll.)
Former President Bush and former Vice President Cheney say that the invasion of Iraq was necessary to overthrow Saddam Hussein, even though he did not possess weapons of mass destruction. Most Republican presidential candidates disagree and say they would not have invaded Iraq if the only goal was to remove Hussein.   To paraphrase a question asked of the candidates, knowing what we know now, should the United States have invaded Iraq?

Yes, we needed to remove Saddam Hussein
35.2%

No, the invasion was not necessary
64.8%

Republicans in the House and Senate are split over extending the Patriot Act, because of the provisions that allow the bulk collection of telephone data from American citizens. The House wants to change the law, but the Senate is pushing to extend it as is.   Should the surveillance section of the Patriot Act be extended or ended?

Extend the surveillance
22.5%

End the surveillance
77.5%
