Because every other problem in Pennsylvania has already been solved ..

From The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette comes this breaking news from Pennsylvania's state legislature.

Rep. Tom Stevenson has introduced a bill which would mandate that dogs and other pets to be secured with pet seat belts or in crates while in automobiles. This would mean no more ear-flapping joy rides for Rover.

As I have previously mentioned, our dog rides in the crate when she travels with us. It makes life easier and safer for everyone. I wouldn't have a problem with Mr. Stevenson's proposal as such.

I do have a problem with legislative time and resources being tied up on such a frivolous endeavour. This ranks up there with efforts in New Jersey to ban smoking in private automobiles as a shining example of skewed political priorities.
