Mister Peejay: Happy Hours:It's no wonder that many elected officials are lawyers and that they write stupid laws and I for one am convinced that they write them in such a way as to allow bullshiat legal battles like this which do not serve the public and which only exist to make other lawyers rich.I'm not.

jake_lex: I'm so glad someone is cracking down on people trying to cheap out and use Arial instead of Helvetica.
