    "Your days of finger-banging old Mary Jane Rottencrotch are over!"

    — Gunnery Sgt. Hartman, Senior Drill Instructor!

    OK, fine. The two changes are that municipal/city police are not advised to pursue violations not immediately or in se hazardous, whatever that means, and that city police are not to begin conversing with subjects about the contents of their person without telling them of their right to refuse any search.

    It's really not a big deal. A bit of wallpaper. But it could be significant for a smaller town that has been, I would say, besieged by a number of foreign interests, especially including by all prejudice inhabitants of neighboring states and counties.

    Mr. Wheeler's phrasing may have been a bit inept, but it's forgivable, certainly. But there are at least two reasons, in persona, that his state, pace KBrown(D) and city lag far behind according to any metric one wishes to apply.

    here's a link to ABC news, that should go back to the AP Wire desk. It's not important: hillbilly yokels yield to pressure. Building codes under fire. New petitions against tax.

    Not intended to be inflammatory, and it's not at all the biggest local news. A small sop, if anything.

    Like the man said, "don't amount to a hill of beans." QED.

    ^ Great line!
