Paris Hilton law

Freshman legislator Donna Hutchinson brings a weighty agenda to the table -- people using cell phones to snap photos under women's skirts. I kid you not. She's going to make it a crime to snap photos in public of covered parts of the body if the photographer's intent is lascivious. I'm still kidding you not. (For illustrative, not lascivious, purposes we've supplied a photograph that could be illegal soon in Arkansas.)

The law prohibits looking, taping or photographing, with the purposes of sexual gratification, into a location in which an individual is present and has a reasonable expectation of privacy.

"Now you have these little phones and people can take pictures out in public ... it's legal because you weren't in a place of privacy," Hutchinson said. "As we advance ahead with this new technology we all have to make new laws to keep up with it."

When cell phones are outlawed, only outlaws will have cell phones.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
