Georgia embraces Widespread Panic

Widespread Panic are celebrating 25 years in showbusiness, and so their home state of Georgia invited them in to play a couple of songs to a session of Senate.

If ever there was a time to filibuster, surely that was it?

It might look like the senators were just amusing themselves when they should have been working, but this wasn't a jolly. Oh, no. It was rewarding Widespread Panic for their "public service". Although, strictly speaking, what they do is more a profit-maximising business, isn't it?
