    Congress should make a law against making laws named after crime victims or dead people.

    I mentioned that in radioman's thread "There ought to be a law". I said there ought to be a law banning the phrase "there ought to be a law."

    You have no idea QW. I've lived in this state for 30 years. It happens every single time. They are still working on some "toppling law" named after a baby that died, that would require furniture makes to warn toddlers not to climb on the shelves.. One problem: toddlers can't fucking read.

    What would you name it?

    I would call it Sarah's Law, named after a dead girl named Sarah who would have had a law named after her had the above law not passed.
