I'm going to have to read that series on Slate. The whole "pass laws that people don't really observe and police don't really enforce" thing has always bugged me.
whistle, you dumb bastard!

There are laws which are unenforced, but many laws (i.e. speeding and jaywalking) which are selectively enforced. So most days you will get away with it, often in full view of the police. But each time you break the law you are taking the chance that today someone feels like making you the example.

Not the example - more the revenue source.
Good point about the distinction though.

Cute woman walking past form part of the environment of setting on a stoop.
(Maybe if I heard about the damn day BEFORE the event, I would've written to it.)

Don't come running to me when you can no longer sit on stoops because of the high water levels from global warming.

How hilarious would it be if that was really Al Gore?
