Letters to the Editor

Silly laws abound

Thank you for printing Patty Andreen’s letter (“Dumb laws universal,” April 8) about ridiculous, often unenforceable laws in California and other states. Clearly, California has no lock on silly laws.

With so many letter writers venting their spleens over intrusive laws in San Luis Obispo and California, Andreen’s letter provides a few laughs and a broad perspective on intrusive and bureaucratic legislation. She shows us conclusively that many of our problems, including nanny government, are common to all 50 states. Hopefully, we can all appreciate California’s benefits and not take them for granted after reading Andreen’s letter.
