Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy is tired of people criticizing his policies, so he’s introducing a bill to mandate all internal memos be written in Medieval Latin.
House Democrats are hesitant. They’re offering a compromise in which memos would instead be written in Ubbi dubbi. Others are suggesting Wingdings as an alternative. Office of Policy and Management Secretary Benjamin Barnes, Malloy’s budget chief, said last week, “If you can’t understand it how can you criticize it. Brilliant!”
Due to the state budget issues Malloy will host a segment on QVC this week where he will sell statutes and battle flags from the State Capitol building to finance the budget shortfall.
Meanwhile, not to be outdone, the republicans have a legislative proposal to seek corporate sponsorship for the various government buildings in Hartford including the Legislative Office Building. However, they have yet to propose the bill because they do not know how to file the paperwork.
