I ran across this article on dog waste in the NY Times this morning. And though I’m a big advocate of picking up after the pups when they go on the neighbor’s yard, I do think the Freakonomics folks took this one a little far into the Orwellian netherworld.
Still, I can pretty much assure you that I would pick up EVERYTHING if this ever went into effect.
Worth the read at the very least. http://www.nytimes.com/2005/10/02/magazine/02freak.html
