Via the Overhead Wire, I saw a couple of days ago that Honolulu is going to be fining people up to $500 or giving them as much as six month in jail for having bad BO.  I was planning to write a quick, funny long-weekend post about this.  But as soon as I started writing, I realized this is really just a new way for transit cops to harass very poor people, and as such is an extension of the US’s war on poverty poor people.  There’s nothing funny about that.
