Let’s hear it for the Politician Of The Day, Florida State Senator Victor Crist.
Just days after my column about automated toilet paper dispensers, Crist has proposed a bill that would require eating establishments to always have enough toilet paper in their bathrooms. Since when is this the business of government, to have inspectors going around making sure the rolls aren’t running out? That’s your job when you go in, before you sit down — and if there isn’t enough, you tell an employee to get some for you. Problem solved. Perhaps Crist got caught copping a squat without checking the supplies first, but that’s no reason to have the Florida legislature spend even one minute on his bill.
Besides, how is Crist going to define “enough” toilet paper?
