Unenforced homebrew law rediscovered and now enforced

http://www.usatoday.com

When the 2010 Oregon State Fair opens on Aug. 27, there won't be an amateur beer-brewers competition for the first time in 22 years. An overlooked, 80-year-old statute that says Oregon home-brewed beer can't leave the home has forced fair organizers to cancel the competition, which had 335 entrants last year. Brewers were reminded of the statute after the Oregon Department of Justice clarified the law for a pub seeking to serve home brew at an event, Scott says. "As long as this is the law, we have to enforce it," she says, adding that the commission hopes to see the statute changed in time for the 2011 fair.

Will any bureaucrat learn a lesson from this? When they realize that there are so many pointless laws on the books, so many forgotten laws that are no longer enforced, will they also realize that enforcing the law is pointless? When the law was not enforced, no harm was done. None at all. But it's on the books. It doesn't matter how stupid or pointless the law is, we have to enforce it. So stupid!
