Update: March 18
I have emailed some columnists about the new article. But I think that some people fear that open discussion of the issue could taunt states that have these laws into trying to enforce them more often, given their budget pressures. I got this kind of feedback (making me the "troublemaker") in 2007 when I first blogged about the issue. States should consider why these laws are on the books if they are not enforced. There is a certain viewpoint that supports them. Remember the 1979 song "We are family"?
Update: Oct. 28, 2014
Wikipedia notes that the article is out-of-date, as of Sept. 2014, and of "low impact". I am not sure yet what happened very recently that is worthy of note. It also notes that the page focuses on only the US and Canada, and is not worldwide. But no one has a complete worldwide compendium on the subject. I'll look further. AARP (previous posted) "punted" on keeping up with this topic. I will check further to see what is going on.
