Bizarro Award: Stupid laws department

At times, Florida legislators outdo themselves when it comes to silly legislation. They have passed a law that requires every public classroom to display an American flag. The flag must by 3 feet by 2 feet. Many classrooms already had flags, but they did not meet the size requirements. In central Florida alone, 15,000 flags will need to be replaced (a cost of approximately $60,000). Well, the schools would have just wasted that money on books, raises for teachers, school repairs, or other such wasteful uses of education funds.
