The Emipre Strikes Back

JP code enforcement inspectors have descended on the taco trucks. Guess the inspectors don't work weekends. In he case of the truck at Power and Vets, they have cited the owner of the lot, not the owner of the truck. Weird. According to the same article, JP has (had) fewer that 10 taco trucks currently operating. Do we need a new law to deal with less than 10 taco trucks?

"The more corrupt the state, the more numerous the laws."
Cornelius Tacitus - (55-117 A.D.)

On a related note, the Louisiana State Constitution, written in 1974, has 230 148 amendments (sorry, can't count).

I was not surprised to see that we are not alone in the crusade against taco trucks. I was surprised to see that many cities in California are fighting them. Here is a good blog listing other communities fighting taco trucks. I guess those communities, like JP, have no other pressing concerns.
