Did everyone have a great vacation with no ABSURD LAWS to bother them?

I did. We went to Maine this year and visited Kennebunkport and Camden. They are both pretty as a postcard with the nicest friendliest people anywhere. We went out on a working Lobster Boat and did some sailing. And plenty of eating. I did not eat Lobster until our last morning in Camden when I had it in an omlet… which was spectacular.

There was an ABSURD NOT law that I was impressed with having previously been a commercial fisherman as a young dude. There is a Maine fisheries law which prohibits keeping very large and huge lobsters. So there are literally millions of lobster traps in the summer months and they have a minimum size for keepers and they have a maximum size for keepers. Mature and large lobsters can reproduce 4 times as much as smaller ones so this is good for the environment and good for the lobster business. Absurd NOT laws rule !!

It’s good to see smart laws that you call “absurd NOT” from time to time. We have a number of them here in Arizona and there are some good ones that are federal of course. But an absurd not law I would consider is that arizona medical malpractice cases have to be filed within 2 years of the date of the injury. I like that because it eliminates people who think about lawsuits way after the fact. If there really should sue they normally will within the 2 year period specified by the law.
