Elections And The Like (Regarding State Animals)

Illinois lawmakers tried to slip one by us recently by naming the Eastern Tiger Salamander the official state amphibian and the Painted Turtle the official state reptile. Who do they think they are? They never even asked anyone (well, at least they didn't ask me). I refuse to bow to these creatures until a proper election has taken place. Until then, I will practice a bit of slight anarchy (you know like shelving all your library's Studs Terkel books in the psychology section) and refer to the Blue-Spotted Salamander as the official state amphibian and the Ouachita Map Turtle as the official reptile. I urge you to do the same.
