Lawmaker is a hypocrite

I laughed when I read the article titled "In Senate, rural team flexing its muscles" (Feb. 24). It began with Sen. Bill Hickman (R-St. George) boasting about how he "passed state troopers in his Corvette with the cruise control set at 82 mph."

I know that many drivers do not obey the speed limit and this speed is really no big deal. But I find it hilarious that an elected representative openly brags about breaking the very laws he seeks to impose on others.

How can you pass laws, expecting others to obey them, when you do not intend to obey them yourself?
