Above The Law
As many of you (especially those here in California) are aware, there is a new law, effective yesterday (July 1) requiring handsfree devices for anyone using a cellphone while driving. I could offer plenty of libertarian arguments against this regulation, and I’m sure we could all have a long debate about ownership of the roads and whether it makes sense.
But I saw something today that just made the point moot. Driving around in traffic heavy San Diego, I saw a cop rolling down the street with a cell phone up to his ear, yapping away. Had I had a cellphone camera, I would have snapped a shot of this, but unfortunately it happened too quickly for a reaction from me.
Apparently, what’s good for the gander is not good for some specific geese. Or, put more succinctly, some geese are more equal than others.
