We are a society of laws. We have to be. Our laws provide the glue holding us together. Laws are just the beginning. The institutions of society are the rest.
By institutions I mean enforcement of the laws, respect for the central place of private property, effective education and a working health care system.
On the latter, I spent time recently with my mother completing an 82-page admissions document required by the facility where she is receiving care. The waste in this document boggles the mind.
My topics today, however, are laws that work with leavening from the delightfully named “stupid factor.”
Abandoned mines offer continuing application of the stupid factor, especially when young men and alcohol are around.
My mom had some claims. She got a Big Brotherish notice from the U.S. Bureau of Land Management saying they may require her to close mine entrances possibly on the claims. Fortunately she no longer has the claims.
Cows sometimes fall into abandoned mines. But, then, cows are stupid.
