Ah, state representatives. They are some of the citizens most actively engaged with our political system—the people on the ground, making laws—so why are they always doing and saying stupid shit?

A class of fourth graders from Lincoln Akerman School in Hampton Falls, New Hampshire, wanted to learn about the process of a bill becoming a law. Instead of simply watching Schoolhouse Rock, they decided to draft a bill of their own—to make the Red Tailed Hawk the New Hampshire State Raptor—and then they went to Concord to see state representatives debate its merits.
