Church and state collide, as happy warrior Rep. Rev. Steve Hickey bucks Capitol tradition with a mirthful meld of theology and political optimism:
It's tradition we all wear black today in the Capitol in memory of our bills that have died. I'm not wearing black. My bills all rise again [Rep. Rev. Steve Hickey, Facebook/Twitter post, 2014.02.25].
I guess we Democrats haven't cornered the market on optimism. Carry on, Rep. Hickey!
