The absurdist part of me loves the Looking Glass world we are rapidly manufacturing for ourselves.
Texas lawmakers are currently doing the People's Work, apparently, to make sure that anyone under 18 cannot avail themselves to a tanning bed without parent's permission. Melanoma is a risk, you know, and pubescent teens are apparently too stupid to assess those risks.
A similar bunch of clown... I mean "officials" has recently held that parents have NO rights, alternatively, to know when their minor children get an abortion.
For all my fellow absurdists out there... how cool is that?
