[Ed.: Gov. Inslee, If Seattle’s such a great place to do business then why did PACCAR decide on building a new plant a half a continent away? Because everything about the business climate in Washington State has declined or never was very good.]

Lamborghini among several exotic cars busted going 100+ mph on way to Spokane car show | KOMO

KITTITAS COUNTY, Wash. (KOMO) – It’s a day Washington State Patrol troopers will be talking about with their colleagues for quite some time, busting several exotic cars for speeding along I-90 as they made their way to a car show in Spokane Wednesday afternoon.

[Ed.: Wasn’t too long ago that officers going to a conference on the east side of the state were tagged by a Washington State Patrol plane as exceeding the speed limit by more than 20mph and they didn’t get tickets even though they were not using lights and sirens.

When will the nanny state abate? If you’ve ever driven across the state you’ll agree that a 60mph speed limit is ridiculous and should be raised like it is in Montana. If the editorial staff had a Lambo or a Bugatti Veyron EB we agree that we’d be out east on I-90 getting tickets right now.]
