If We'd Only Stopped Him At Garden State, There'd Be No The Ring Of Brightest Angels Around Heaven.

Finally, someone is willing to stand up to the scourge of Rick Moody. The state of Arizona is mulling over a bill that would entitle students at the state's public institutions of higher education the option to opt out of any coursework requirement that they find personally offensive, on the grounds that someone or other was displeased by The Ice Storm. There would presumably be some other consequences, but what the hell?

Personally, I'm not a fan of Rick Moody either, but I usually limit myself to disdainful sniffs and sayings along the lines of "Get a job, Rick Moody," rather than this sort of dedicated legislative action.
