Ok, I know things are a bit slow in the Pocono's, but this kind of garbage that our politicians consistently spool out is starting to become much too predictable:
"Boomer rode into the pet store parking lot with his head out the window and his tongue flopping out of his mouth.
His owner, Maria Morales, wore her seat belt, but Boomer didn't have one. Just a pink blanket to sprawl on in the back seat.
A lawmaker from suburban Pittsburgh wants to have Boomer, and all animal passengers, restrained in vehicles.
Rep. Tom Stevenson's bill would also restrict owners from letting their dogs hang out the window.
The idea for Stevenson's bill came from an 11-year-old boy who entered an annual 'There ought to be a law' contest."
