All that legal mumbo-jumbo

law: (noun) the principles and regulations established in a community by some authority and applicable to its people, whether in the form of legislation or of custom and policies recognized and enforced by judicial decision.

Today, on the home page for The Toronto Star, there is a survey question, asking if polygamy laws in Canada should be enforced.

Um, yes...isn't that obvious?

I mean, laws are meant to be broken, if you want to be cliche, but, if you want to be realistic, aren't laws also meant to be enforced?

I wonder if the next survey will ask if murder laws should be enforced.
