The Jumping Jack. Approved by a 25-5 state senate vote yesterday. I wonder why 5 senators voted no, were they supporting the push up or some other activity?
In any event this action makes a kind of sense and a nice way of giving school kids a look at the legislation process.
"Students from at St. Joseph’s Pershing Elementary School lobbied for the jumping jack in honor of Gen. John J. Pershing.
The Missouri-born general led U.S. forces in World War I and is credited with inventing the jumping jack as a training drill for cadets when he taught at West Point.
Some of the students were present Thursday as the Senate voted 25-5 for the bill. They applauded."
