In a recent attempt to make sexual assault and battery easier to
prosecute, the Missouri State Legislature managed to pass a bill
which, due to syntax and punctuation errors does nothing to
strengthen the sexual assault law.  Instead, the new law manages
to overturn the state sodomy law in cases of consensual male-male
sex (something which privacy and gay-rights activists have been
trying to do for years with no success), AND it outlaws consensual
heterosexual sex.

I love this state!
