A Bit of Something to Bridle At

Benz Twain wanted to massage horses. The chaps at the Maryland Board of Chiropractic Examiners tried to rein her in. IJ responded:

On June 10, 2008, the Institute for Justice filed suit in Montgomery County Circuit Court in Rockville on behalf of Mercedes Clemens [see what I did back there? – MP], challenging Maryland’s animal massage regulations as a violation of fundamental constitutional rights (emphasis added).

Who knew we had ineighlienable rights?

Also, I was thinking about horse puns, and it occurred to me (as I’m sure it has to anyone else who’s thought about horse puns) that The Horse Whisperer left itself open to some ham-handed parody.

Update: Apparently it has occurred to ~108,000 other people. Benz Twain’s all mine, though.
