Federal Shutdown Creates Skateboarders’ Paradise

It’s illegal, but what the hell, the feds are throwing the elderly out their homes, blocking war veterans from visiting their memorials, but let’s turn the city over to the Beavis and Buttheads ! Awesome! Why not open the Smithsonian museums during inclement weather? Bet the kids would love to do what they do down a dinosauer’s back? Yeah!

You can read the Wall Street Journal story and see the slide show here.

But wait, there is this:

If caught by the police, skaters could have their boards impounded and be given a ticket for a $50 fine. Frustrated officers have chased the skaters on motorcycles, ambushed them by arriving en masse from different directions, tackled and handcuffed them.

Good luck with that. The damage done to the lovely and historic stone work, safety railings, fountains and other landscaping features will be paid by We The People.
