Odd laws in Michigan

Did you know taking part in a walkathon is illegal in Michigan?  According to State Representative Kurt Heise, chair of the House Criminal Justice Committee, that’s what dance contests were called in the 1920’s and lawmakers back then saw fit back to outlaw them. The Plymouth Republican says it’s also against the law to dance to The Star Spangled Banner, to say anything shameful about someone for not accepting a duel and to curse within earshot of women and children.  Heise’s committee is considering whether to repeal these laws, and a few others, that are outdated or are too hard to prosecute to keep on the books.  (MRN)
