Are you aware that in 1996 Georgia..
passed (and the Governor signed) a law that said all people had to use their real names in any internet post?

http://news.com.com/Georgia+OKs+quotNet+Policequot+law/...

And that it was later ruled unconstitutional?

That goes to show you how closed minded the Georgia state government has become.

1. And how were they going to go about enforcing that?
Probably too stupid to know they couldn't.

4. When I was in college (many years ago)
some state or other passed a law that the value of PI would now be equal to 3.141.

Our local elected officials can be some very goofy people, not to mention not to bright.
