Stupidest thing I've seen all day...

A travel writer for USA Today has a piece about how Winona County in Minnesota has a bill being considered by commissioners today that would ban county employees from using hotels for work-related travel if the hotel offers porn on their pay-per-view TV systems. If the employee stays in such a hotel, they would not be reimbursed.

The county isn't considering banning county employees from paying for porn pay-per-view with county funds, which would be a fine idea, nor even banning county employees from paying for porn with their own funds. If the hotel just happens to offer porn, they can't stay there.

Most of the comments on the piece miss the point completely, saying moronic things like "Well, they shouldn't be buying porn with my tax dollars."
