Ban the Banning

What a great impression people must get of our fair Metro area when reading our site lately. Welcome to DC the land where we don’t want you to drink, smoke, drive, ride bikes, or make decisions for yourself.

While we’re at it let’s add a few. We want to ban outdoor home improvement (pesky sawdust gets everywhere), playing loud music (my baby’s tyring to sleep), dancing (gasp human contact!) and noisy sex (aww someone is having more fun than me). Because after all, these are all things that can mildly effect the people around us as well.

All of this banning talk reminds me of the lyrics of the ever immortal Vapors in their classic “Turning Japanese” –

“No sex, no drugs, no wine, no women
No fun, no sin, no you, no wonder it’s dark
Everyone around me is a total stranger”

Seriously, all of this is ridiculous. Is DC really coming to this? No wonder car theft is on the rise; all our policy makers are too busy worrying about all of these really critical issues.
