The ban parade

This week President Obama lifted the odious bans on federal funding for embryonic stem cell research and for organizations that provide information on abortion. But you can rest assured that just about anywhere in the world, moral busybodies still want to prevent you from having or doing something, whatever it may be. Here are a few examples:

Birmingham in Britain bans the apostrophe.

Lucca in Tuscany bans new non-Italian restaurants from its medieval center.

Honolulu bans texting while driving.

North Dakota won't ban texting while driving.

Hawaii may ban superslim cigarettes.

Minnesotans seek ban on smoking in cars carrying children.

FDA panel recommends ban of Darvon.

Beer ban to be lifted for some U.S. troops in Iraq.

New York weighs ban on horse-drawn carriages.

Neenah, Wisconsin, nears ban on roosters.
