Today is Beef Day. Each year, the beef industry goes Olympia on Beef Day to make scores of barbecue tri-tip sandwiches and lobby lawmakers about the importance of Washington's $3.2 billion annual beef market. State Senator Brian Hatfield (D-19) is big on Beef Day. He posted a video about it last year, and the Washington State Democrats promise on Twitter that he's got another video in the works. Beef Day, ladies and gentlemen!
