    I saw on NPR news that the state of Utah now has the lowest level of ethanol to trigger a DUI, 0.05. That is great what they, and we, really is any level above zero. That would be driving with a positive blood alcohol as they have in most of Western Europe.

    More importantly Utah also applies this ethanol level to carrying a firearm. This makes sense. An automobile is not designed as a lethal weapon but becomes one when the the operator is impaired with intoxication (actually any level of ethanol impairs performance). A firearm is actually designed as a lethal device and becomes more randomly so with any impairment of brain function. Why should it be illegal to operate a motor vehicle impaired and legal to operate a firearm, a device designed to be a lethal device, while impaired.

    Think about it.

    Godspeed in your work at the legislature.

    I have wondered for some time why the state patrol wears an American flag on its shoulder. This is a federal insignia. I have always believed that the patrol is in the employ of the State of Washington. Is there some agreement between the federal government and the WSP? If so what is it? If not, why do they wear federal identification of any kind?

    I ask this question now because with the Activities of the current federal administration it seems to me that we should look long and hard at this relationship.

    Thank you,

    There are news reports that activity is afoot in the Washington state legislature to make illegal, even criminalize acts of non-violent protest deemed “economic terrorism”.

    This would be contrary to the right of Americans to Peacefully assemble. It would shut an avenue of protest that is non-violent. If such sects were to be made felonies it would strip persons engaged in peaceful protest of their voting rights.

    There is additionally, of course, the issue of defining “economic terrorism”.

    I write to voice my strongest objection to such action and to offer my support in its opposition.

    My name is Jackson Whitley. I am a student currently doing a school project, for a Political Science class, based on campaigns for State Representative in the 22nd District. I was hoping Mrs. Doglio would be able to answer a few questions about her campaign, in whatever way she can (by phone, in person, or by email).

    Thank You,

    Jackson Whitley
