So first-time home buyers are going to be allowed to use the $8,000 tax incentive to pay closing costs and as part of down payments. Uh-wasn't the lack of sizable down payments part of what got us in this mess?

Just today, Karissa told me about Colorado's law forbidding private citizens from collecting water in rain barrels. I just swiped this off the gardening blog. Colorado will no longer put you in the pokey over a little rain. In some parts of the country, it's still a crime. In others, it's a crime not to.

Wonder what Utah does to little kids catching raindrops on their tongues? Send them to juvie? 

Smoking ban

There's a big debate about a law inforcing a total ban of smoking in public places in NC. It seems that the people who profit off of others' addiction are trying to block the bill. I'm all for it; it'd be wonderful to go out and listen to a good band without getting up the next morning with a headache and a sore throat from breathing secondhand smoke.

Smokers, think about it; people are taking advantage of you. While you're paying good money to ruin your health and the health of your friends and relatives, tobacco executives are counting their profits and having a good laugh at your expense.
