On Fishing and Pointless Laws

(Wyandotte, MI) I could see no reason why local authorities prohibited fishing on certain parts of this Detroit River pier, while allowing fishing aficionados to cast their lines in "designated" areas. The anarchist/libertarian that lurks in me, therefore, saw no problem with any anglers who might have crossed over the government's arbitrary line of demarcation to snag a few perch or bass from the river.

And I would be highly agitated at any state or local official who tried to cite me for a violation of the fishing boundaries, especially if said individual waltzed up with shiny new shoes and a heavy dose of mineral makeup.
