   JOKE    THOUGHT    OPINION
There’s a hairy story in today’s edition of the Joke of the Day!


"If you wouldst live long, live well, for folly and wickedness shorten life."

~Benjamin Franklin (1706 - 1790)
Alan Caruba A Pox on Baltimore




   THIS WEEK'S POLL
The State Legislature in Hawaii has passed a bill that increases the minimum smoking age from 18 to 21. Supporters say it could have a dramatic impact on overall smoking, since many smokers take up the habit as teenagers, and teens are considered more vulnerable to addiction. Cities and towns around the nation, including New York City, have already raised the smoking age to 21, but Hawaii would be the first to do it statewide.   Should Wyoming raise its smoking age to 21?



Two recent multiple vehicle accidents on Interstate 80 in Wyoming have rekindled the debate about the road’s safety. Some say that expanding the interstate to three lanes in each direction would make the road safer, but others worry about the cost and say it is not necessary.   Should Interstate 80 be expanded to three lanes?





   LAST WEEK'S RESULTS
(WyomingNetwork does NOT represent this as a scientific poll.)
Governor Mead is calling for Wyoming to create 10 new reservoir projects over the next 10 years, to increase the amount of water storage in the state. Some of those projects would reduce the water flow downstream to states like Colorado and California, which is suffering from a severe drought.   Should Wyoming increase its water storage, even if it means drought-stricken areas downstream would receive less water?

Yes, Wyoming needs the water
79.0%

No, let the water flow downstream to states that need it more
21.0%

A Wyoming legislative committee is studying the possibility of creating a statewide bicycle path using existing roads and bike paths. The hope is that by offering more opportunities to cyclists, tourism may increase.  Should Wyoming create a statewide bicycle path or network of bike paths?

Yes, create a statewide bicycle path system
59.4%

No, a statewide bicycle path is not needed
40.6%
