Not sure what to think of this

December 11, 2009

My first reaction to this CBS News story was that it was sexist and unfair.  The second was that it was just absurd.  See for yourself:

There are apparently laws on the books dating back more than 150 years, when the Gopher State was just the Gopher Territory, making it illegal for a married woman to cheat on her husband,reports CBS station WCCO-TV in Minneapolis.

Another statute prohibits single women from having sex at all.

The law against married women is a gross misdemeanor and carries a prison sentence of one year, plus a possible fine of up to $3,000.
