Is coming nearer on the path.

More Legislative Time Wasting

CNN reports:

AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) -- Texas lawmakers sent a message to the state's high school cheerleaders Wednesday: no more booty-shaking at the game.

The state's House of Representatives voted 85-55 to approve a bill that would forbid sexy cheers and give the Texas Education Agency authority to punish schools that allow "overtly sexually suggestive" routines at football games and other events.

I have only one question: why don't they stop futzing around with half-measures and outlaw breasts. For that matter, they could outlaw all reproductive organs. If nothing else, it'd be a hell of a lot more expedient.

Just for the record, Texas schools have much bigger problems than cheerleaders shakin' it.
