"One should doubtless keep an open mind...though open at both ends, like the food pipe, and have a capacity for excretion as well as intake." -- Northrop Frye, 'The Great Code'

Free to be idiots
The town of New Denver, BC has apparently voted to ban all cell phones. Now they are perfectly free to do so - there's no law against being an idiot. Though, to be fair, the vote was close - only about half the town are idiots.
"It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their consciences." -- C. S. Lewis
