Score one for Governor Fruit Tree

I'm no fan of former Kentucky Governor and current state Senator Julian Carroll. His long career of making government bigger and less accountable is a textbook case for limiting terms or taking other steps to eliminate elected office as a long-term career destination.

But no one will be hurt by Carroll's Senate Bill 154, which would name the Pawpaw tree as the state fruit tree. They are beautiful trees and the fruit is very good for you in addition to tasting great. Besides, Frankfort seems very unlikely to accomplish anything of substance this year other than agreeing to get Kentucky out of ObamaCare. So I say "bully for you, Governor Fruit Tree!"
