A Valentine for Texas

This Valentine's day could be a little more fun for Texans:

Thursday, February 14, 2008 A federal appeals court has struck down a Texas law that makes it a crime to promote or sell sex toys.

"Whatever one might think or believe about the use of these devices," said an opinion written by Justice Thomas M. Reavley of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans, "government interference with their personal and private use violates the Constitution."

It's always good to see one of those stupid, silly, sexually repressive laws go away. Go crazy, Texans.

Yea, does this mean that the lady at Forbidden Fruit can actually explain to me all the features of my sex toy purchases without pretending that's not what they are, until she realizes I'm cool and everyone else leaves, but still in a euphemistic way. This is a blessed day indeed!

Well, thank goodness for them. If they've gotta claim W, then they deserve a little relief!
