In major cities nationwide, lawmakers are getting serious about crack. No, not the rocky cousin of cocaine. Butt crack. CNN is reporting that sagging pants are being outlawed in Atlanta, Trenton, and other cities where the powers that be are deciding that rear-end cleavage should only be exposed in public if and when one is fixing a sink. And one city is Louisiana is already charging coin slot exhibitionists with a $500 fine or six months in prison.

Had you asked me my opinion on this issue yesterday, I would have said that legislators should worry about more pressing issues. But after witnessing the very-ashy buttcrack of a homeless person strolling across the Macarthur Causeway this morning, I say, where do I sign? --Raina McLeod
