Texas Rep. Edmund Kuempel who represents District 44–the fightin’ 44th–has introduced a Texas bill that would legalize hunting for the legally blind. If it passes, I’d be interested in the success rate of such hunters as compared to those with working vision. It’d be interesting to do a study, comparing the number of hits from, say, one deer stand to another. Or ducks. You couldn’t let the hunters know about it, so as not to interfere with the data. In that respect, it’d be a … wait for it … Double Blind Blind Blind Test.

(That was a long way to go to get there, and it was entirely unworth it.)
