Political Reform I Can Support

It’s 1am and a fresh support call from work has me up late. Wheee! At least CNN can be counted on to deliver fresh surrealism to my desktop. To wit: “Lawmaker wants tiny boxing gloves on roosters.”

State Sen. Frank Shurden, a Democrat from Henryetta and a long-time defender of cockfighting, said the ban had wiped out a $100-million business. To try to revive it, he has proposed that roosters wear little boxing gloves attached to their spurs, as well as lightweight, chicken-sized vests configured with electronic sensors to record hits and help keep score.

Thank you, Oklahoma.
