Honestly, there are some days when I think the California legislature is actually an elaborate makework program for Hit&Run bloggers. Because seriously?
In February, State Sen. Kevin DeLeon, D-Los Angeles, introduced SB 432, which once deciphered would require every single hotel in California to switch to fitted sheets….
The bill reads as a workers safety bill, and also introduces legislation forcing hotels to offer cleaning tools with long handles—essentially long enough so workers wouldn't have to bend over.
"There is absolutely no scientific proof that fitted sheets are safer than flat sheets," said Randi Knott with the [California Hotel Association]. "If there were, we'd be using them already."…
She also questioned how fitted sheets would make a difference—citing housekeepers will still have to lift the mattress to tuck the top sheet.
Tim Cavanaugh talked about this brilliant bill on the radio in May. See, it's working: full employment for Reason writers!
