God, I love living in South Dakota
Giving cowboys a free pass on Saturday nights

From KELOland news:
The House Transportation Committee voted 10-to-1 for the bill last week, which would cancel out the long-standing state law. It would exempt horses and bikes from the definition of vehicles. But a sergeant with Minnehaha County says the bill won't change things in the Sioux Falls area.

"I don't think we'll see much of a change around here. We don't have a lot of incidents where people are riding a horse drunk or riding a bicycle drunk," he says.
Read all of this not-so-tall-cowboy-tale here. Since the whole horse thing originated around the Pierre/Ft. Pierre area where a man was arrested for riding a horse drunk, I frankly think it's hilarious.

Even more so when his defense was that the horse knew it's way home, despite the rider's state. AND HE GOT OFF. He was found not guilty because of his horse's sense. It is said that God looks over drunks and children. Better add "the legislature looks over old cowboys" to that list as well.
