Going Too Far?

Trying to legislate morality often doesn't work, should we expect different results when trying to legislate common sense?
Missouri has passed a law making it illegal for state teachers to friend their students on Facebook.

I think it's wrong. Remember... **I** am the parent. If I want my kids to be able to friend their teachers on fb, that should be my business.

And... what does this say about the Missouri Legislature's trust in teachers?? Sorry to put it that way, but there it is.

It's been often said that you can't legislate morality. I would like to amend that to read, you can't legislate common sense.
