Someone has apparently discovered a 60 year old section of a California law directing doctors to seek a cure for homosexuality. Its repeal is being debated in the State Assembly.
It is not the State's friggin business to tell doctors to seek cures for homosexuality...or homophobia, for that matter.
Did I remember correctly the brilliantly economical legal system in one of the states in Gulliver's Travels? They could have no more laws than the number of letters in their alphabet and each law could have no more words than that, either. Once the number of laws was completed, if they wanted to enact a new one, they had to get rid of an old one.
Politicians are a plague.
