Governmental Silliness

One doesn't know whether to laugh or cry:
The mayor of Navolato, Evelio Plata Insulza, announced that he will propose the prohibition of miniskirts, as a way of reducing the number of unwanted teenage pregnancies.
Even if you aren't a fan of the miniskirt, you'd have to be close to brain dead to think that there's a corner of Sinaloa where there aren't much more important challenges for governments to occupy themselves with. However, Plata's is not the stupidest reason to oppose the miniskirt ever concocted in Sinaloa. This is:
In 2009, the rector of the Universidad Autónoma de Sinaloa, Héctor Melesio Cuen Ojeda, believed that the increase in violence in Culiacán could be slowed by prohibiting female students in the foremost institute of higher learning in the state from using miniskirts.
If only The Onion existed in Mexico: "Mayor prohibits women from having legs".
