PONDERING?? seems to me these idiots had better be pushing this kind of legislation through. like, stoning of anyone who gets caught stealing and/or
leaving this information in an insecure place. [Edited by Don W]
Let’s face it, I’m old. I have always been interested in law and laws. I was born in Ky. My first recollection of reading a law book was
Carroll’s Statutes. At the public library. All the laws of Ky were in one bound volume. Close to but not quite the size of Webster’s 2nd
International. A few years later, Ky had a Revised version in 3 loose leaf binders, colored red. Then a decade or two later, the 3 became 7, but now
Today it takes 22 bound volumes to hold the statutes and 7 similar volumes to hold the Administrative Regulations that have the force of law. Hmm? I
used to ask, “Do you feel safer on the streets today than you did a couple decades ago?”
I should clarify, in every instance these are "annotated" statutes books, which means every law case involving each statute is mentioned and a brief
synopsis included. That may consume 2/3rds of the space, but the same proportions would apply to each incremental revision. Maybe we’re doing
If Americans don’t like something, they make it against the law. It that does not stop it, they double the penalty.
Just how smart is that?
