Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of ... Toilet Paper
Sen. Victor Crist, R-Tampa, is trying to push through a bill through the Florida legislature requiring that rest rooms have toilet paper in the stalls. Now, I am as fond of toilet paper as the next person, having endured the medicated wax paper of London and the wrinkly crepe paper of Italy, but I have my doubts as to whether this is an arena into which the government should be intruding. Was a time, Florida was the last frontier. But I shouldn't be surprised. Nowadays, we are the only state with a constitutional amendment concerning the treatment of pregnant pigs. I kid you not.
