"No man's life, liberty or property is safe when the Texas legislature is in session"

So as I dressed to come in to work today, I had the local news running in the background. They did the usual blather, sports, traffic, weather, and then a quick blurb about the TX legislature. Turns out, one of our esteemed colleagues from Baytown has decided it should be criminal to miss a Parent Teacher conference. He wants to make it a Class C Misdemeanor and a $500 fine.


Since when did we start making anything that is inconsiderate a crime? Didn't say "Please"? $250. Cough without covering your mouth? $500. Tell a nosey state rep to piss off (with a sufficiently smarmy British accent of course)? Death penalty.
