Some brilliant minds tried to get the City Council of Los Angeles to “proclaim a moratorium on murder and violence” for 48 hours in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. [story]

Once the moratorium is lifted, murder and violence is permitted to return to it’s normal schedule and intensity.

How do these people rise to the positions they do? The stupidity of this ridiculous feel-good gesture astounds me. What’s next? Reduce the affects of acid rain with a moratorium on gravity?
