You read that correctly. The quote comes from The Daily Record of April 14. Gov. Martin Oƒ_TMalley signed this meaningless, do-nothing bill into law on April 12. It was sponsored by Baltimore state Sen. Lisa Gladden. As a result of this latest display of ƒ_oDemocrats Gone Wild,ƒ__ insurance company executives now have to become historians.
Dumb Law in New HampshireLink to Article: http://www.clubforgrowth.org/perm/pr/?postID=227
The City of Concord allows businesses to have electronic sign displays, but only if the electronic message displays nothing more than the date, time and temperature.

Does the city think drivers will get too distracted by the thought of tasty, inexpensive meals or cheap dry cleaning that theyƒ_Tll cause accidents?
