Re: Letter of the Law versus Re-Interpretation of the Law?

Couldn't agree more. As if we dont have enough to busy law enforcement with. Nearly ANY US coin we find is still legal tender and there is nothing antique or attributable about them - and could probably be won in federal court with wnough $. I fully understand the intent of stopping grave robbing or looting of Native American sites. I can understand the desire to keep a site like Jamestown preserved. I cannot understand a few special interests or archiologists with a personal agenda stopping something as benign as metal detecting when done responsibly. I believe this falls under good intentions, improperly leveraged, and peanut buttered via the ignorance of those cajoled to create legislation.

I do miss simpler times when we followed civic principles, minded ones own business, and didn't seek to legislate ourselves into inextricable corners.

Now, stepping off my soapbox.
