    There's a story going around, "Top Ten Weird Marriage Laws" or somesuch, and my browsing around after that discovered a weird law in Georgia supposedly requires every able-bodied male between 16 and 50 years of age to work on the public roads. I tried to find the source of that and couldn't. But I did find a Florida case. Anyone know of the Georgia basis?

    Give me the training and access to the equipment and I'd be glad to go fill potholes on Russell Pkwy and Watson Blvd.

    At one time, even after the Bill of Rights was passed, that several states had official religions and it was ruled to be Constitutional to have such.

    - - Remember the language of the law is "Congress shall make no law ..." unlike the Second Amendment's " ... shall not be abridged [without citing a limitation]."

    Amazing how in time that the meanings of just those two amendments can be interpreted to become almost the opposite of what they were first meant to be, isn't it?
