Californians are now officially less free

Neo-fascistic dictator of the People's Republic of Kah-lee-for-nee-uh has now signed a bill that outlaws sex with dead people. And no, I'm not making this up. Excerpt:

The new legislation marks the culmination of a two-year drive to outlaw necrophilia in the state and will help prosecutors who have been stymied by the lack of an official ban on the practice, according to experts.

The fact that prosecutors felt they needed this law really, really bothers me.

It makes California a much safer place?

Does this bill also ban sex with chicks who just lay there? :-D

I don't even know where to begin with this. Necrophelia is a problem in California? Bleh! So much so that they had to come up with a law?!! And are they going to have people who specialize in this sort of law? "Hi. What kind of lawyer are you?" "Oh, I specialize in getting clients acquitted in cases of necrophelia." Yuck.

Heather, I don't know if CA is safer now. Except for the dead, of course.

Harvey, I... there isn't anything resembling good taste that I can use as a reply. For ONCE, I'll pass on the opportunity.

BOudicca, those were my sentiments exactly. Gah.
