Your government at work

Second-degree theft isn't technically a crime in Alabama today.

That's because the Legislature, before it got busy outlawing something that's already illegal and passing a law to forbid itself from passing a law earlier this year, approved legislation last year that 1) changed words in the state code such as horse, mule, and ass to equine and equidae and 2) somehow inadvertently eliminated the crime of second-degree theft in the process.

You just can't make up stuff like this.
