1908 – "New York City passes the Sullivan Ordinance, making it illegal for women to smoke in public, only to have the measure vetoed by the mayor."

1977 – "United States President Jimmy Carter pardons nearly all American Vietnam War draft evaders, some of whom had emigrated to Canada."
Because of these cowards, we're all speaking Vietnamese today!
"Princes may make laws and repeal them, but they can neither make nor destroy virtue, and how indeed should they be able to do what is impossible to the Deity himself?" - Ethan Allen (January 21, 1738 - February 12, 1789)
