Best RU4-Pharmacist-Brow-Beating Bill 86'er

Patti Anne Lodge, a Republican from the hamlet of Huston, south of Nampa, 86'd this latest attempt to legislate morality by putting the bill in her drawer. Usually we'd cry for a hearing, but the bill, which would have permitted pharmacists to refuse to fill prescriptions of things like birth control on personal moral grounds, did have a hearing in the House and passed that lower body. So here's a BOB to Lodge for using the chairman's drawer for its intended purpose.
