Okay, fine; we'll vote 'em out. The latest insanity? A Public Intoxication
Our chance to start removing these "Justices" comes up in 2012, when Grand High (oh, ain't he?) Panjandrum of the Indiana Supreme Court Steven H. David takes his seat in the dunking booth. Let your aim be true, O Fellow Hoosiers, and vote this freedom-hating nitwit back to ambulance-chasing, where he belongs. Or, if he promises to be nice, the gutter, which is a step up.
My home state does a lot of things right. Picking him wasn't one of them. Some of his backup singers need to hie themselves otherwhere, too. Y'know, I'd even take me a straight-up Leftie, if he was a good lawyer and promised to read all the rules and apply 'em fair and square, rather than go diddling around after whatever whim went wafting through the howling, empty wilderness of his mind. But I'm a dreamer; Lawful Evil was only ever a category in a game.
Semi-relatedly: Didja know Oklahoma was Dry from the start in 1907 right up through 1959? Strewth, and it was ended in an unusual manner: "In the 1950s governor J. Howard Edmondson, wanting to end the illegal traffic in booze, realized that the way to end prohibition was to enforce it. With vigorous tenacity Edmondson instructed local authorities to set up roadblocks, search vehicles, arrest violators [...]. [...]Oklahoma began to dry up, liquor became increasingly hard to find, hotels began to lose convention and conference business when it was learned for the first time that they wouldn’t be providing liquor. Now unable to get their drink, Oklahomans demanded change. [...W]ent to the polls and officially ended prohibition." D'ya suppose that was the original goal of the War On Some Drugs? --No, me neither. Anyway, there's your wild and wooly West, all two-faced Temperance an' such for half a century. Next time someone tells you this law or that will "take us back to the days of the old West," don't forget this tid-bit of history!
