It’s good to know the cops are on top of things.
The Longmont constabulary comes to mind in that regard, laying down the line on the pernicious practice of unlicensed cosmetology.
In a performance reminiscent of “High Noon,” the Longmont cops came down hard on Suzette Hall, who is alleged to have committed barbering and cosmetology without a license, a double offense.
Oddly, the fuzz overlooked Hall’s work clothing in their investigation. Perhaps they failed to notice that she did her trims while naked from the waist up.
No word on whether the cops were displeased by the way she arranged her, uh, customers’ hair.
Cheap Seats kids, of course. If busting shirtless and unapproved hair stylists isn’t a core function of government, then pray tell, what is? What would come of 21st Century Western Civilization should bands of bare-breasted cosmetologists wielding combs and pinking shears be allowed to roam the countryside unregulated?
Oh the humanity!
One reason that Hall is under suspicion of a felony — yes, that’s right, a felony — isn’t because she’s Bonnie Elizabeth Parker (the Bonnie in Bonnie and Clyde).
It’s because liberals buy off constituencies by promising them freedom – freedom from competition and innovation. That’s why the odd criminal charge of unlicensed barbering exists at all. Oh, and did we mention that unregulated hair cutting isn’t just a matter of local concern. It is apparently a federal offense, according to the local DA.
We at Cheap Seats have to wonder – if the Longmont cops and the feds have the time and resources to sting “undocumented” cosmetologists, do we really want all that government we’re paying for?
