"bustin' a sag"

The proposed outlawing of baggy pants wearers showing their underwear was only one bill before the Virginia legislature out of a total of 2,700 to be debated in just 6 weeks. They have also found time to make it harder for gay and lesbian couples to adopt children, reinforced the ban on gay marriage and attempted to overturn the motorcycle-helmet law. Delegates who tried to overturn the helmet law said motorcyclists, not lawmakers, should decide how much to protect themselves, but this laudable attempt at libertarianism doesn't extend, it would seem, to knickers.
