Alvie, Joan and all:

I read that bill and also noted how all the interpretations were to be left
to the bureaucrats.

This reminds me once in the lounge behind the House of Representative's
chamber in Missouri. One older legislator was lamenting all the laws we
kept passing, and said we should just follow the bible and the ten
commandments, as that was God's word.

I said, "But what about Leviticus?"

Without skipping a beat he said, "Oh, that was just rules and regulations."
