Montana, there are so many things to adore about you! Your bizarro state legislature, unfortunately, is not among these adorable things:
Montana's House of Representatives passed a bill last week that would permit people to salvage meat from game animals killed in traffic accidents.
Nothing wrong with that! Responsible adults should feed themselves as they please. Plus, times are hard and waste is bad. "We're just looking for something good for Montana so they can use the meat," noted the bill's sponsor, whose name is Steve Lavin (I know, you were thinking Ron Swanson).
While the Roadkill: It's What's for Dinner bill sailed through the Montana House on a vote of 95-3, another bill looks like it will have trouble passing.
That's because it's not about roadkill. It's about The Gays.
The [Montana] Senate overwhelmingly endorsed a proposal that repeals an anti-gay law ruled unconstitutional in 1997 by the Montana Supreme Court. The state's deviate sexual relations law still makes illegal "sexual contact or sexual intercourse between two persons of the same sex."
Freedom to eat roadkill: yes! Freedom to have sex with the consenting adult of one's choice: no! Pretty bizarre, Montana. Though maybe that's just the E. Coli talking.
