The States as Laboratories

In today's news from the states, the Va. Senate has dropped its droopy-pants bill. Teenagers everywhere are sighing in relief. The bill would have imposed a $50 fine on anyone whose pants fell below his waist in such a way as to show his underwear. I would have thought approbrium from Joan Rivers and the other fashion police would have been enough on this one.

In other news, an Oklahoma legislator is trying to bring back cockfighting by equiping the chickens with boxing gloves. And to think that in some states, these are only part time jobs for very little pay.

I think this should provide us hope for such initiatives as returning more responsibilities to the states and such projects as term limits.
